Lourdes University is pleased to announce the establishment of the William Randolph Hearst Scholarship benefiting disadvantaged students who demonstrate financial need.  The $75,000 scholarship allows Lourdes to award several scholarships over a three-year period to qualifying students.

The generous gift was made possible through Lourdes Board of Trustees member William Carroll, retired CEO of NRG Dynamix, and George Butler Irish, Vice President and Director of East Coast Operations for the Hearst Foundations. Born in Toledo, George attended Central Catholic High School and has maintained strong ties to the region. He is often quoted as saying his first job in journalism was as a carrier for The Blade.
