The awards are named in honor of Sister Paulette Williams, RSM. She was a teacher and principal at Charlotte Catholic High School from 1973 to 2000. Her dedication and commitment to students and staff was instrumental in building the high school we know today.

“Let us thank all those
who teach in Catholic schools.
Educating is an act of love;
it is like giving life.”
                     Pope Francis

Kara Ann Kloiber '93 cherished her time at Charlotte Catholic High School. She saw her school as a faith community where friends lasted forever and teachers became family.  Sadly, we lost Kara Ann in a car accident in 1997.


Her family established a scholarship fund in her name, knowing she would want to continue to help others. 


In the years since its establishment, this scholarship has benefited many by providing tuition assistance to those who exemplify Kara's love and appreciation for CCHS.  


Applications should be filled out by the student, and signed by a parent. The next application period will open during the summer of 2019, with an application deadline in September 2019.  Check back soon for additional information.
