The Martin J. Reddington Scholarship Fund lauds academic merit at GSC

The Martin J. Reddington Scholarship Fund lauds academic merit at GSC

From the Advancement Office – Good Shepherd Catholic School

Great expectations net great success, one parent’s golden rule: Read a Chapter Ahead

Mr. Martin J. Reddington (1938 – 2015), known by many members of our community as “Marty” has been described as a very loving husband, a successful businessman, a loyal friend, a steward of the community, a devotee of good health and fitness, and a patron of the Catholic Church.

Most recently Marty was described to us here at Good Shepherd Catholic School by his devoted wife of 54 years, Eileen, as a wonderful father who placed great value in Catholic education having instilled in their six children, all of whom attended our legacy school Queen of Peace, the extended value of “reading a chapter ahead”. Eileen lovingly shared with us that her husband’s response to their children when they told him that their homework was done was to say “Wonderful, now read a chapter ahead.” Marty instilled in their children the importance of being prepared and working hard- – -er.

Eileen Reddington, her children and extended family, as well as their dearest friends are sharing in the legacy of Marty’s golden rule; they have generously established a scholarship in Marty’s name “The Martin J. Reddington Scholarship Fund”. This wonderful fund will support academic merit scholarships for GSC students whose families are in need of a bit of help to support their child’s tuition. Mrs. Reddington is committed to the memory of husband and is honoring his name by ensuring that the message of his golden rule, to read a chapter ahead, is shared with our students now and in the future.

For the Reddington family, much like all of our GSC families, having great expectations and preparing for success is a family practice. This practice also conforms to our mission at Good Shepherd Catholic School; our dedicated faculty and families work together to develop our students’ God-given talents and academic promise. We are preparing our students for a faith-filled life of learning, leadership, and love for others.

Sincere appreciation is extended to the following individuals who are recognized as founding contributors of “The Martin J. Reddington Scholarship Fund”. Thank you very much for honoring Good Shepherd Catholic School with your faith, commitment and support in memory of your loving husband, dearest friend, and family member.
