Liwanga Awarded Jesuit Spirit of Service Scholarship
Cheverus is thrilled to announce that Immaculata Liwanga has been awarded the Ignatian Year Jesuit Spirit of Service Scholarship. An incoming member of the Class of 2026, Liwanga is an active volunteer in her parish, both as an altar server and a summer camp counselor. She expressed her excitement about joining the Cheverus community, “Cheverus has the people, culture, and faith that will allow me to grow into the person God created me to be.”
In keeping with Cheverus's Catholic and Jesuit heritage, and informed by our commitment to living as women and men in service to others, earlier this year Cheverus announced this special full, four-year scholarship, open to 9th grade applicants whose contributions to their community through service and leadership warrant special recognition.
In her essay, Liwanga referenced 1 Peter 4:10, “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace.” She said, “I believe this perfectly sums up the vision Cheverus has for its students…we are all called to use our talents for the good of other people.”
Congratulations Immaculata - and welcome to Cheverus!
