About

The Middleton Scholars Program is named in honor of Richard “Rick” Middleton who passed away on September 21, 2017.  Rick was an outstanding Holy Cross educator, beloved colleague, and devoted mentor to thousands of Bishop McNamara young men and women.  The Middleton Scholars Program provides a strong support community through advising, mentoring, and financial aid.  Join Mr. Middleton's colleagues, friends, and former students including Reginald Brady, Director of Student Support and the Middleton Scholars Program, Laura Keller, Senior Class Moderator and Social Studies Teacher, Herman Gloster '96, Co-Director of Admissions and Social Studies Teacher, and Mike Jones '96, Sophomore Class Counselor, in this effort to raise awareness and support for the Middleton Scholars Program.  Please support The Middleton Scholars Program today with your financial gift to help make a Bishop McNamara education possible for these students most in need.

Thank you for supporting the Middleton Scholars Program!

Dear Middleton Scholars Program Supporter,

I want to thank everyone for your support of the Middleton Scholars Program.  Because of your gift, we are able fully to support a Middleton Scholar this year as a result of the funds raised during the Middleton Scholars Giving Campaign.  

We raised $23,400.00 as a result of this Campaign and we exceeded our 50 donor goal as we reached the 64 donor mark.  Gifts were received from as far as California and gifts were made by current board members, employees, current students and parents, and a host of generous Bishop McNamara and La Reine alumni.  The spirit of philanthropy shown during this Campaign, that only spanned a total of nine days, demonstrates the goodness of this community.  It also reflects the incredible impact that Mr. Middleton had on colleagues, students, and friends here at Bishop McNamara during his tenure that lasted from 1986-2013.  A gift made to the Middleton Scholars Program honors Rick's legacy as one of our greatest Holy Cross educators.  Thank you!

If you or others from the Bishop McNamara community are interested to learn more about the Middleton Scholars Program, please contact me at (301)-735-8401, ext. 158 or via email at robert.vanderwaag@bmhs.org.  

Our goal for The Middleton Scholars Program is to provide ten students each year with a strong support community through advising, mentoring and financial aid.  The vision of the Middleton Scholars Program is to create an education model that addresses the cycle of poverty that negatively influences our students' communities and replaces it with hope and success for these young people here at Bishop McNamara, in college, and beyond.

Thank you for your support of the Middleton Scholars Program and for your support of Bishop McNamara High School.

Honoring Mr. Rick Middleton

Today we honor the life and memory of Mr. Rick Middleton, who passed away one year ago today.  We miss his warm sense of humor, good nature, and gentle spirit each day here at Bishop McNamara.  We know he would be grateful and heartened that the Bishop McNamara family has rallied together in this cause to support this program that honors his name.

We reached our 50 person donor goal today with a gift from Jordan Mosby '15. Thank you!  We still have two more days of giving as the Middleton Scholars Giving Campaign ends tomorrow evening at midnight.  If we raise more than $1700.00 over the next two days, the $10,000 matching gift will go into effect, thus raising our total well above the $28,000 mark, which allows us to fund more than one Middleton Scholar for an entire academic year!  Please share the link!  Let's keep moving forward Bishop McNamara family and thank you for your generous support of the Middleton Scholars Program!
