Pat Rindone Scholarship
Pat Rindone was a 1978 graduate of Saint Albert. He participated in many sports at Saint Albert, and his passion for athletics continued throughout his life. Pat enjoyed baseball, golf, and water sports. As his children joined sports, Pat took on the role of director of PAL baseball, acted as a coach and role model for the Western Iowa Youth Sports Football Organization, and cheered on his children from the sidelines as a father and a spectator.
Pat provided his many friends and family with support, encouragement, and a positive outlook on life. No matter how busy he was, Pat was always upbeat and perceptive to the needs of those around him.
Pat was a loving husband, very proud father, and a steadfast friend. The Pat Rindone Scholarship was established to honor Pat who embodied the traditions of Saint Albert by living a life based on faith, family, and friends.
The recipient will receive a scholarship in the amount of $1,000 for his/her freshman year of college.
Applicants must complete an application and a one page essay explaining why they applied for this scholarship.
