Knights Scholarship

The South Bend Knights of Columbus Archbishop John Carroll Council #5570 is a Catholic Men's Fraternal organization. We have dedicated ourselves to (5) areas of service: Family, Fellowship, Faith, Community and Youth.

In support of our youth and faith service goals, we have begun fund raising activities and then the subsequent awarding of scholarships for Catholic Elementary School students. This year's scholarships were awarded July 27, 2009 at our Linden Ave. Council Chamber on South Bend's West side.

The recipients of $1,000 scholarships for 2009-2010 school year were Paige Pajakowski, a 5th grader at Corpus Christi School and Madison Singer, a 6th grader at Holy Family School. Paige is the daughter of John and Francine Pajakowski of South Bend, and Madison is the daughter of Scott and Jennifer Singer, also of South Bend. We wish Madison and Paige the best as they continue their education in the South Bend/Fort Wayne Diocesan Catholic School system.

We, the members of Knights of Columbus Council #5570 wish to express our heartfelt thank you to the Kaniewski Funeral Home to help make this scholarship possible.
