Wednesday, April 14, 2021

Carroll College junior communications and public relations major Emily Murgel of Westminster, CO, has received a $1,500 Reverend Frank Lawrence Harrington (ANAVICUS) Scholarship for the 2021-2022 academic year. The award is in recognition of academic achievement, leadership potential and spiritual conduct in keeping with the best traditions of The American Legion and Carroll College. Murgel is specializing in marketing and print journalism with a minor in social media. Her long-term goal is to work in either the nonprofit sector or healthcare administration to increase awareness and funding through grant writing.

The Reverend Frank L. Harrington Scholarship was established in 1987 by the Army, Navy and Air Force Veterans in Canada, United States Unit, to honor Father Harrington, National Chaplain of The American Legion in 1947-48. Father Harrington was a spiritual leader, teacher and patriot, as shown by his service to Mount St. Charles College (later renamed Carroll College) as dean of men and professor of mathematics. His spiritual leadership and close liaison with Canadian veterans, as members of the Army, Navy and Air Force Veterans in Canada, helped develop a close relationship which led to the awarding of honorary life membership in the Canadian group’s United States Unit to members of The American Legion, a unit which flourishes today.
