Leah Bailey Powers Memorial Scholarship

This entrance scholarship was created in loving memory of Leah Bailey Powers who passed away in 2009 at the age of nineteen.

This scholarship will be given to a student graduating from Holy Heart of Mary Regional High in St. John’s who is entering his/her first year of studies in any discipline at Memorial University of Newfoundland.
