Quincy Notre Dame Foundation received a bequest from the estate of Rev. Kenneth J. Venvertloh in excess of $47,000 to support the Ferd and Betty Venvertloh Scholarship Fund managed by the QND Foundation.
He was born on June 1, 1939, in Quincy, a son of Ferd and Betty Venvertloh. He was a 1957 QND alumnus and was ordained in 1967 in the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Springfield. Fr. Venvertloh served as pastor at St. Mary Parish in Quincy for many years and served on the Quincy Notre Dame High School Board.
“We are grateful to Fr. Ken for the generosity shown investing in the future of QND students,” stated Kurt Stuckman, executive director of the QND Foundation. “Gifts that go toward such scholarships provide the much needed financial assistance for families. We are blessed that Fr. Ken made a lasting gift to Quincy Notre Dame.”
The QND Foundation operates to financially support Quincy Notre Dame High School by bridging the gap of what it costs to educate a student and what is charged for tuition. Funding also provides financial assistance to students.
