Tony Merk Scholarship Fund


Tony Merk Scholarship Fund

La Salle High School in partnership with the Merk family have created the Tony Merk Memorial Scholarship Fund to keep the spirit of Tony alive.

Below is a brief synopsis from the Merk family:

"We believe Catholic education, particularly a LaSallian education, is invaluable in developing strong leaders and good Christian young adults. We have personally witnessed the strong character of LaSallian young men in the love and generosity they gave to Tony and our family. We also fully understand the expense involved in a Catholic education so are very pleased to have the opportunity to offset the costs of a LaSallian education for a young man who desires it. La Salle is like family to us and we are excited about the opportunity to help welcome a young man into the family who might otherwise not be able to afford it.

We are thankful Tony’s inspiration can help give a young man the opportunity for a LaSallian education. Tony is a Lancer in spirit and with the Tony Merk scholarship, he will attend La Salle through the young men receiving the scholarship. For us, it will be as if Tony is attending La Salle – in the spirit of the young men who receive the scholarship."

As a part of our efforts to keep Tony's memory alive, La Salle has organized the following:
