The St. Francis Xavier Parish Joan of Arc Circle 1405 chapter of the Daughters of Isabella, an international Catholic women’s service organization, has awarded its annual scholarship to Emily Faschan, of New Orleans, a senior at Mount Carmel Academy. The scholarship is given to a young woman between the ages of 12 and 16 who attends Catholic school. The winner is chosen on the basis of her service to the community, commitment to living her Catholic faith, and an essay on the topic “What My Faith Means to My Family and Me.” Faschan was presented the scholarship at the organization’s annual tea on Sept. 28.
