The Jordan Horeth Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Kumel Weldegebriel, in recognition of her involvement in Church and community activities while maintaining a strong academic performance at Charlotte Catholic High School.

The scholarship was established in honor of Jordan Horeth, a parishioner who tragically died in auto accident while driving to college classes in 2009. The award was presented by Mike and Karen Horeth, Jordan’s parents, and Father Pat Hoare, pastor.
