We are pleased to share that a $500 tuition scholarship at DeSales was recently established by the family of Janet M. Federspiel who passed away in July 2021.

Two of Janet’s grandchildren attended DeSales Catholic School. During her grandchildren’s time at DeSales, Janet was a pivotal volunteer for the DeSales Swim Team as a coach, official, assistant coordinator and mentor. Coach Janet was well known by the families and children for her passion and love for the sport of swimming.

It was through a difficult time in Janet’s life that her love for swim was developed and it was her participation in the sport that helped her overcome many physical challenges. Swimming became an essential part of her life and she volunteered for various swim programs teaching hundreds of children in the area how to swim. Janet was a kind and loving woman who was dedicated to giving back to her community in various ways both in and out of the pool.

This scholarship will be awarded to a deserving DeSales

Catholic School Swim Team member in December 2021.

If you are a current member of the DeSales Swim Team you are encouraged to apply for this tuition scholarship by completing the form linked below and returning it to Mrs. Knuutila at DeSales Catholic School. A committee comprised of Coach Janet's family will select the scholarship recipient.
