The family of the late Sister Mary Dee Ellis, IHM ’91 has established a memorial scholarship at Immaculata High School in Somerville. In addition to honoring her memory, the family hopes it inspires others to carry on her commitment to Catholic education and service to others. The very generous scholarship of $10,000 for a rising Immaculata senior is awarded each spring. To qualify, one must reflect the values and example of Sister Mary Dee, IHM, with a particular emphasis on the unique elements of her character. She was recognized for her kindness, compassion, peacefulness, joy, and thoughtfulness, as well as her strong faith commitment, and dedication to service, especially to the poor.

Honoring the memory of Sister Mary Dee, IHM at the Annual May Crowning Mass, Immaculata congratulates the 2021 recipient of the Sister Mary Dee Ellis, IHM Memorial Scholarship, Lucy Cornyn of High Bridge.
