Alumni and students love to compare stories of their walks up Loras Boulevard and classes taken in buildings across campus. However, it is the people they meet in residence halls, on teams and in and outside the classroom that generate impactful memories. Sister Bernadine Curoe is one of those individuals who has made a difference in the lives of so many young men and women.
For the last 37 years, she has dedicated her time to Loras students, staff and faculty. From student life to the counseling center, Sr. Bernadine has worn many hats. To honor her, an endowed scholarship was created in November of 2015 and donations are being accepted to fund the scholarship which will help students facing financial challenges.
At the age of 85, she continues to counsel the Loras community three days a week; and many on campus find it hard to keep up with her on most days. The legacy of support for those who have been part of the Loras family is evidenced by the number of named scholarships. Currently Loras has 183 named endowed scholarships, created on behalf of family, friends and former students.
This spring, Loras College Executive Director of Alumni and Communications, Bobbi Earles (’88), will be part of Dancing With the Stars, Dubuque Style, in an effort to help raise dollars for this scholarship.
