Terry O'Connor Memorial Scholarship Campaign

57% of $25,000 goal
This campaign ended on January 15, 2024, but you can still make a gift to Bishop McNamara High School by clicking here!

The Desmarais and O'Connor families have graciously created a scholarship in memory of Terry O'Connor, BMHS Class of 1974. 

Terry loved his experience and time at Bishop McNamara. He had an absolutely larger-than-life personality and was deeply loved by his colleagues and friends. Additionally, he was devoted to supporting students with developmental disabilities, and loved the Best Buddies program. 

For those in the DC area, we will hold a pickleball tournament at the Army Navy Country Club on Sunday, October 22nd. We will be working to fundraise $25,000 towards the Terry O'Connor Memorial Endowed Scholarship between now and the end of 2023. 

This scholarship will not only preserve Terry's memory but also provide a life-changing opportunity for future students who embody his passion for life, learning, and friendship at Bishop McNamara High School. 

Help us reach $25,000 and continue Terry's legacy at Bishop McNamara!
