By Noel’s dad, Laurence.
We cannot be thankful enough for the blessing that the Arete/ACE Scholarship provides our family, in particular, our 4th grade son Noel. Without it, he would not be able to attend Our Lady of Mercy School in Baton Rouge. With it, he is able to continue his Catholic education where the focus on his spiritual development is as important as his educational development.
The benefits and opportunities that this scholarship provide are immeasurable. Noel’s interest in learning, socializing and worshiping in an environment that supports him personally continues to strengthen. The growth he has made by attending OLOM school is inspiring and hopeful and would not be possible without the assistance the scholarship provides.
We remain prayerfully thankful for it daily.
