The Reginas of King’s College, a group consisting of mothers of past and current King’s College students, recently presented a check to the College to be applied to a scholarship named in honor of a deceased Congregation of Holy Cross priest who previously served as their moderator.
The Reginas organization was founded in 1948, two years after the College opened. Named in honor of Mary, Queen of Mothers, the group holds monthly meetings during the academic year.
The scholarship is named in honor of the Rev. Clement Podskoch, C.S.C., who served as the group’s moderator for 30 years prior to his death in 1999. The scholarship is designated for use by a sophomore or junior King’s student who resides in Luzerne County and exhibits financial need. The student must maintain a minimum 3.0 grade-point-average.
A Catholic College Sponsored by the Congregation of Holy Cross
