Sister Bernadine Curoe Scholarship
"If there is anything in the world I would have wanted and treasured and appreciated and been grateful for,
it would be a scholarship in my name to help needy students; it doesn't get much better than that."
-Sr. Bernadine Curoe



In life, we meet people who have an influence and impact our lives. From our parents and friends to our co-workers and extended family.  Sr. Bernadine Curoe is one of those people in my life, so now it is my turn to pay it forward to her. On April 30, 2016, I will be participating in the Dubuque Area Chamber's "Dancing with the Stars, Dubuque Style" to raise money for an endowed scholarship at Loras College so she can continue to make a difference in the lives of young people. All the funds raised will stay in Dubuque and will help students realize their dream of a college degree. 

Sr. B as she is affectionately referred to, has dedicated her life to helping people in Dubuque and for the last 38 years has touched the lives of countless Loras students, including me. At the young age of 85, she continues to offer counseling to students, staff and faculty on campus three days a week. From the first moment I met this incredible lady, she has inspired me to believe in myself, dream big and always be there for others. Sr. B sees in us what we have trouble seeing ourselves, what a wonderful gift we, too, can share with those around us.  

Over the last several months I have planned a number of fundraising opportunities and at the event on April 30, the Chamber will announce what each dancer has raised for their non-profit.   You can be part of this journey with me  together we can help Sr. Bernadine come away the winner and in turn you will be helping the students at Loras, too. Every dollar counts and will help make a difference! Now, let the fun begin and thank you for your support to the Sr. Bernadine Curoe Scholarship.
