The Parvis Scholar Program

A Scholars Program to honor intellectually promising Christian leaders of St. Mary’s High School.
Named in honor of St. Mary’s Teacher of the Year 1991-1992, the Parvis Scholar Program was established to honor the work of Rosemary Annette Parvis, Social Studies department chair and teacher. Following graduation ceremonies on May 23, 1992, the St. Mary’s High School community suffered the loss of Rose Parvis in a tragic automobile accident. She was an extraordinary woman: a loving wife, a compassionate and caring mother, a consummate academic, a passionate and dedicated teacher. She was a quiet leader and a constant model of the Christian values which she lived each day.
The Parvis Scholar Program
The Parvis Scholar Program is governed by an academic committee which reviews applications and selects students to be named Parvis Scholar nominees. Students who are selected will receive singular distinction as Parvis Scholars – an honor they will carry throughout their years at St. Mary’s. Recognized Parvis Scholars, selected on the basis of both merit and potential, as well as academic achievement and Christian leadership
ability, will demonstrate the principles which Rose Parvis espoused and which are
an inherent part of the philosophy of a St. Mary’s education.
Upon graduation, these students will have:
• sustained a grade point average of 4.0 or above
• demonstrated Christian commitment over a four year career at St. Mary’s
• illustrated service to the St. Mary’s High School community and to the community at large through leadership in co-curricular and social arenas
• attained acceptance to an institute of higher learning to further pursue a professional      career
