The Margaret Claffey Scholarship
Established in 1998 by Michael Claffey ’50 in memory of his mother Margaret M. Claffey. The Claffey Family Scholarship is awarded to a financially disadvantaged student who has a strong interest in the humanities. Partial scholarships are available.
In memory of Coach Buckley and in honor of Coach Aberer, we are starting the Buckley-Aberer Scholarship that will be awarded to financially disadvantaged students with superior academic achievement and a proven record of leadership. These future Brothers Boys should also possess the same ideals and values these gentlemen instilled in all of their athletes. For many of us, one or both of these men had a profound impact on our lives on and off the court. The Buckley-Aberer Scholarship reminds us how fortunate we were to spend our formative high school years under their guidance. We can’t think of a better way to recognize their long, successful careers. La Salle has provided us a way to say “thank you” to Coach.
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.
