South Buffalo residents who are students at Notre Dame Academy or Discovery School and plan to attend a Catholic high school are eligible to win one of four $1,500 scholarships awarded by the Marie Jackson Scholarship Committee.

Typewritten essays of 150 words describing “How You Plan to Live Your Life to the Fullest” must be postmarked by May 1 and mailed to Laurie Roof, 417 Abbott Road, Buffalo, NY 14220. Scholarship awards will be based entirely on the essays. Winners will be notified before June 1.

The scholarship, supported by an annual golf tournament, honors the memory of Marie Jackson, an avid sportswoman who golfed and bowled in two leagues until she was 80. She died in 2006.
