Additional consideration will be given to applicants who plan to pursue education and a career dedicated to public service, particularly in an area important to Ceili such as environment, sustainability, human rights, global development, or realization of peace and justice.
This scholarship honors the legacy of Ceili Anne Leahy, a member of the James Monroe High School Class of 2014.
Ceili fought cancer with grace and dignity as she continued her high school studies and extra-curricular activities. She graduated in 2014 and attended the University of Virginia that fall. Ceili died in January 2016.
Ceili was an excellent student but, more importantly, an exceptional person with a strong commitment to public service. She cared deeply about people, human rights, justice, and the environment. Ceili worked tirelessly to improve the human condition and the natural world. She was a great friend and colleague who had the ability to bring out the best in those around her, helping others to see the inherent goodness in themselves. She led by example and through the passion she demonstrated for her beliefs. She was creative, particularly in writing, and loved to laugh, travel, and learn about other cultures.
Ceili was president of JM’s French and Amnesty International Clubs. At UVa she studied global sustainability and was active with Habitat for Humanity, the Community Garden, and the Outdoors Club. She planned to join the Peace Corps after college and pursue a career in global sustainability and writing.
Scholarship funds may be used for post-secondary educational expenses including tuition, books, fees, room and board. (Post-secondary education can include college/university, vocational school, trade school, etc.) Pick up an application in the JMHS Counseling Center.
