Chris Connors Memorial Endowment
On November 17, 2014, the Bishop Blanchet community lost Chris Connors; a beloved faculty member, alumnus, coach, and fixture in the Bishop Blanchet community. On the one year anniversary of Chris’s passing the Connors family and Bishop Blanchet created the Chris Connors Memorial Endowment. Scholarships given from the funds created by this endowment will be awarded based on need and merit to students wishing to continue their Catholic education at Bishop Blanchet High School.
The creation of the Chris Connors Memorial Endowment and the types of students it will assist are specific to Chris’s wishes discussed before his passing. It was Chris’s desire that whenever possible recipients should be students from single parent families or students from families that have experienced the loss of a parent. Chris hoped that with the aid of a scholarship that recipients would be able to find strength and support from the school community, much like he did as a student and as a faculty member.
Chris Connors loved his family and he loved Blanchet. Chris’s family hopes the creation of this endowment will serve as a way to fulfill Chris’s wishes and to create a lasting impact for future students at Bishop Blanchet High School. If you are interested in honoring Chris Connors, please know that anyone can make a gift to the Chris Connors Memorial Endowment. All gifts made are 100% tax deductible and eligible for corporate matching gifts. All gifts to this endowment will be used specifically for the purpose of growing the Chris Connors Memorial Endowment.
