Xavier College Preparatory Senior McKenna Cassidy won the Catholic Community Foundation’s Ralph M. Knight Chemistry and Engineering Scholarship.

Ms. Cassidy, who graduated from Xavier last month, will receive a $5,000 tuition award to study mechanical engineering at the University of Notre Dame in the fall, according to a press release. Nancy Knight established the scholarship in 2010 to honor the legacy of her late husband, Ralph, who was a chemical engineer and help others contribute to society as he did.

The scholarship is intended for freshman-year tuition assistance at a four-year college or university in the US for a student majoring in chemistry, chemical engineering, manufacturing engineering, materials and science engineering, mechanical engineering, solar energy engineering, or structural engineering.
