Marist High School/Marist Brothers

Philanthropic Activities

Through the Roche Family Foundation, Marist High School alumnus Robert Roche and his wife award The Ed and Mary Roche Scholarship to the African-American student who demonstrates academic leadership.  The Ed and Mary Roche Scholarship was named for Robert’s parents, who provided a Catholic education for all nine of their children. Each recipient receives a $20,000 scholarship, 5,000 per year for four years.  Roche, who has offered the scholarship for more than 15 years, believes in that a diverse student body enriches the education for all students at Marist. Through this scholarship, Roche proudly supports the school’s mission while preparing students for higher education and life.
