Arete Scholarship in Memory of Kevin J. Morsching St. Thomas More

“Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence (arête), if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” New Testament, Philippians, 4.8


The family and friends of Kevin J. Morsching wish to honor his memory by awarding a scholarship of $1,500 to 2 graduating seniors from St. Thomas More High School, Rapid City, SD. Kevin graduated from STM and exemplified the principle of arête.
