The Detura Family Scholarship
In 2008, James Detura ’74 established an endowment fund to assist La Salle Academy in its mission to provide a Lasallian Catholic education to current and future students by providing tuition assistance. Students qualify for scholarships based on their grammar school performance and other testing requirements. Students must maintain grades to keep a scholarship or other form of financial aid.
The Valentine A. Lehr ’58 Scholarship
La Salle Academy proudly honored Mr. Valentine A. Lehr ’58 with a scholarship in his name in May 2017. One of La Salle’s most dedicated alumni of his generation, Mr. Lehr spent an extraordinary eight years in his role as Chairman and many more years as a member of the Board of Trustees. Under his conscientious and principles leadership as Chair, La Salle was put on firm financial footing once again. This scholarship will help give this generation of Brothers’ Boys the opportunities to become men of character, faith and integrity like Mr. Lehr.
James W. Prendergast ’48 Scholarship
Established in 2017, the James W. Prendergast ’48 Scholarship Fund was named in memory of Jim Prendergast for his unwavering service to his alma mater. After passing on January 13, 2017, Jim left behind a legacy at La Salle that will never be forgotten, providing extraordinary guidance and expertise as an active member of the La Salle Development team until the day of his passing. This scholarship will be awarded to financially disadvantaged students with superior academic achievement and a proven record of leadership. These scholarship recipients will possess the same ideals and values that Jim Prendergast held as a dedicated member of the La Salle Academy community.
