Eighth-graders Robert Kelly and Isaac Ayala will use the funds toward their tuition as they continue their Catholic education at Villanova Preparatory School and Chaminade High School, respectively.

Raquel Latham was a lifelong supporter of educational opportunities, especially for intercultural exchange, women in education and Catholic education. The fund in her honor was established in 2016 by her husband, Donald Latham.
