Linda Dodd Scholarship: 

Linda was a beloved teacher here at St. Vivian for 20 years.  She tragically died in an automobile accident in 2000.  A memorial fund was started and a memorial garden was developed outside the school library to commemorate Linda’s love of reading.  Her family developed the “Human Fund” in her honor and hold an annual golf outing to raise funds for Catholic education at St. Vivian and several area Catholic high schools.  This document speaks to the use of those funds at St. Vivian School specifically.

Annually five (5) scholarships, not exceeding the amount of tuition owed, will be awarded to students at St. Vivian School.  The maximum amount for these scholarships will be determined by the Dodd Family and the St. Vivian business office each year, not to exceed $700.00 each.  The guidelines for these awards are as follows:

  • One scholarship will be awarded to the student in the current third grade with the highest test percentage score in the Accelerated Reader Program as of May 1. This scholarship will be available to parishioner and non-parishioner families, but only up to the amount of outstanding tuition not covered by any other assistance.
  • One scholarship will be awarded to a parishioner child of a multi-generational St. Vivian School family. The award will be decided by random drawing and a student can only receive the scholarship once in their tenure at St. Vivian. The scholarship will only be for up to the amount of tuition not covered by any other assistance.
  • Students not receiving Ohio State Vouchers may apply for a scholarship by submitting an essay answering “Why is reading important to me?” Three scholarships will be awarded with one in each of the following category:
    • Kindergarten through Grade 2
    • Grade 3 through Grade 5
    • Grade 6 through Grade 7

The application process will begin on May 4th and be open until May 11th.  Awards will be made based on the actual essays written or by random draw at the discretion of the Tuition Review Board.

All scholarship awards will be made at the final school Mass of the year, are non-transferrable if the student leaves St. Vivian, and applicable for the upcoming school year.  No actual funds will be given to the families, but applied to the family’s tuition balance.  All scholarships will be overseen by the Tuition Review Board.

Other money contributed to the Linda Dodd Memorial Fund can be used for small incidental expenses needed for upkeep of the Dodd Memorial Garden.
