Home-schooled student earns full scholarship

Nicholas DiGregory, a senior in the Mother of Divine Grace Homeschool program and a parishioner of St. Peter the Apostle in Libertytown, has been awarded the Father Michael Scanlan Scholarship, a full four-year scholarship, from Franciscan University of Steubenville.

DiGregory, the son of Martin and Anita DiGregory, has served as a representative to the Archdiocesan Youth Advisory Council and has walked the French Way, just more than 100 miles of the 500-mile Camino de Santiago de Compostela (the Way of St. James) pilgrimage in Spain.

DiGregory, who carries a 4.0 GPA, was asked to craft a written essay, interview before a panel of faculty, staff and religious and to participate in a group skit for the scholarship competition. The scholarship is named in honor of Chancellor Franciscan Father Michael Scanlan who served as president of Franciscan University for 26 years.
