Notre Dame Club donates to JPII scholarships 

The Notre Dame Club of Hilton Head has made a donation to the scholarship program at John Paul II Catholic School. This year the donation was made in honor of the late Richard Fagon who taught theology at JPII and was dedicated to Catholic education. 

Bob Clemens, President of the Notre Dame Club, along with Karen Slaggert, presented a $5,000 check during the recent JPII College Fair to Principal John McCarthy. 

“One of our core missions is to support Catholic education,” Clemons said, “and we gave $20,000 this year to JPII, St Gregory, St Francis, and St Peter’s.” 

Slaggert and her husband Paul are Club board members responsible for Student Support and Charities to assist students who might otherwise not be able to afford a Catholic education in the Lowcountry.
