For sure, he's waiting to see the best deal for the Union. He was high up in the Plumbers Union at Celotex before they closed. Tried to bump the boys at the Vets' home after that... That didn't work, but he still weaseled himself into a $76,000 yr position there, that I'm not sure how he was qualified, but that's the Union difference, I guess.

You can actually look at the Public School retirement on there its just in a separate section. Some pretty large numbers in that one to be sure. $17,000 per month ain't bad if you can get for watching the price is right in your underwear but that is what the system calls for that we as taxpayers allowed to be put in place. There is also one person on there that has been retired since 1973!!!!…

QCES Foundation Newcomer’s Scholarship applications now available

10 months ago by Bob Gough

The Newcomer’s Scholarship is a partially need-based, non-renewable, full-tuition scholarship that will be awarded to one student at one of Quincy's Catholic elementary schools.

 

 

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, the Quincy Catholic Elementary Schools Foundation is once again pleased to announce that the Newcomer’s Scholarship Application is now available for those considering enrolling their child(ren) in one of Quincy’s four Catholic elementary schools for the 2014-15 school year.

The Newcomer’s Scholarship is a partially need-based, non-renewable, full-tuition scholarship that will be awarded to one student, whose family wishes to enroll their child in Kindergarten through 8th grade for the 2014-2015 school year. At the request of the donor, recipients may be either Catholic or non-Catholic, but the recipient’s family must not currently have any children enrolled in one of Quincy's four Catholic elementary schools,Blessed Sacrament, St. Dominic, St. Francis and St. Peter.

In addition to completing the Newcomer’s Scholarship Application Form, applicants must also complete the Private School Aid Service (PSAS) Form, which helps determine a family’s financial need. The PSAS Application Form can be found on the website of the school at which they wish to enroll their child. Additionally, as part of the Newcomer’s Scholarship application process, applicants must submit an essay of 250 words or less explaining why it is important for their child to receive the QCES FoundationNewcomer’s Scholarship, and why they wish to enroll their child in one of Quincy’s four Catholic Elementary Schools. 

“We are very grateful to the donors who wish to continue to provide a Catholic elementary school education to a student, either Catholic or non-Catholic, whose family does not currently have a child enrolled in a Quincy Catholic Elementary School,and who could benefit from the full-tuition assistance provided by the Newcomer’s Scholarship, explained Paul Rittof, executive director of the QCES Foundation.

“While the Newcomer’s Scholarship is non-renewable beyond the first year, the recipient will be eligible to apply for tuition assistance in subsequent years, and any tuition assistance a student may be awarded will be based on the financial need of the student’s family, as determined by PSAS, and the amount of tuition assistance available from the QCES Foundation for that particular school year,” added Rittof.  Since the scholarship is partially need-based, the name of the scholarship recipient will remain confidential. 

The complete scholarship application packet, including eligibility criteria, is now available in the office of each of the four Quincy Catholic Elementary Schools, and on each elementary school’s website, as well as on the website of the QCES Foundation, which is quincycatholicschools.org. The application deadline is 4 p.m. on Friday, April 18, 2014.  For
