Nano Nagle College Scholarship

In the spirit of Presentation foundress, Nano Nagle, the Dubuque Presentation sisters initiate a $1,500 Nano Nagle College Scholarship to further her legacy of education. Nano Nagle was a young Irish woman who spent her days teaching those who would have otherwise been deprived of an education and her evenings were spent walking through the streets of Cork, Ireland bringing food and medicine, comfort and hope to those in need. Nano Nagle was a WOMAN of SERVICE. Her life reflected her own words, “If I could be of service in any part of the world, I would gladly do all in my power to do so.”

Today the Sisters of the Presentation follow in Nano’s footsteps by serving in education, pastoral ministry, chaplaincy and advocacy for the disadvantaged and those made poor throughout the United States and Bolivia.

This year’s $1,500 Nano Nagle Scholarship will be awarded to a deserving senior from St. Mary High School in Storm Lake, Iowa, who plans to further his or her education. This scholarship rotates among the many high schools in which Presentation Sisters have ministered. In the following years, the scholarship was awarded to the following schools:
