Catholic Foundation Selects Reverend Roughan Scholarship Recipients

The Catholic Foundation of the Diocese of Norwich, Inc. is pleased to announce the 2020 recipients of the Reverend Richard F. Roughan Scholarships as Julia Kalrberg, daughter of Mark and Kathleen Karlberg of Waterford, and Payton Sutman, son of Heston and Elizabeth Sutman, also of Waterford.

Julia is entering her sophomore year at the University of Rhode Island, where she is majoring in mechanical engineering. Payton will begin his freshman year at the College of the Holy Cross this fall.

Each year, two students are selected by the Foundation to receive the Reverend Roughan Scholarship. Revered Roughan was a longtime pastor at St. Paul Church in Waterford and established the scholarship through his will. In order to be considered, a student must be a member of St. Paul Church and complete an essay entitled, “Why My Faith is Important to Me.”
