A Scholarship Honoring Kathie Brown

A Legacy of Impact and Inspiration

Principal Kathie Brown opened the doors of Holy Family for our first class of students in September of 2000. Over the next 20 years, our school grew and set standards for academic excellence and Catholic Christian leadership. She created a school culture focused on personal relationships with students and a willingness to do whatever it takes to help them reach their fullest potentials. At the end of June, she will retire as our longest-tenured employee, and the only principal that our school has ever known­— a legacy of impact and inspiration.

Many of our nearly 2,000 alumni — and sometimes even parents — received a hand-written message from Kathie on post-it notes left on a report card or notecards sent through the mail. Kathie believes strongly in the impact of positive affirmations on students’ efforts and esteem. You are invited to send a message for Kathie with your gift either by leaving a note in the comment section or by sending a handwritten card with your gift.

For now, a formal community farewell must be postponed; however, we would like to invite you to honor Kathie and her legacy today with a gift to the newly established Kathleen Brown Opportunity Scholarship Fund. This scholarship recognizes her contributions to our school. It provides an ongoing gift so dear to her heart—tuition assistance for those who desire a Holy Family education but could not otherwise afford it.

If you would like to make a gift to the Kathleen Brown Opportunity Scholarship Fund, you may do so using Venmo (@HolyFamily-Fire), by mail to Holy Family Annual Fund ATTN: Kathleen Brown Scholarship, 8101 Kochia Lane, Victoria, MN  55386, or by clicking the button below to use our online giving form.
