A memorial scholarship fund was established by the family and friends of Moshe Jamil Rogers (1977-1995) to commemorate the life of one of Aurora’s most promising student leaders.

Moshe Rogers was a student at Aurora Central Catholic High School where he excelled in track and basketball.

As a star athlete, he was being pursued by such prestigious universities as Georgetown and Notre Dame.

Moshe Rogers also was an inspirational role model for younger children who looked to him for guidance.

According to the Reverend Edward Gillespie, pastor of Our Lady of Good Counsel Church which Moshe attended, “Not in my memory…has the death of an individual touched and moved so many people.”

Scholarships from this fund are awarded to students graduating from Aurora Central High School who are able to demonstrate positive values in the areas of character and leadership.

There’s no question in my mind that the scholarship I received opened up possibilities.

Marianne Renner

Past Scholarship Recipient & Current Leadership Coach

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.
