Bishop Amos: Let Prince of Peace Honor its Agreement
The Eychaner Foundation applauds the Prince of Peace school board for its' support of having Keaton Fuller's scholarship presented as the school has promised to do. Ed O'ONeill told the Quad-Cities Times the following:
Ed O’Neill, president of the Prince of Peace school board, said Keaton’s scholarship was discussed at the April 17 school board meeting and nobody expressed any concerns about having someone from the Eychaner Foundation present Keaton with his scholarship.
O’Neill said he was “disappointed and confused” by the diocese’s decision, especially because the school already had given assurance that a representative of the foundation would be allowed to present the scholarship.
“If you say you’re going to do something, you do it,” O’Neill said. “I guess I don’t understand what the big deal is about somebody from the foundation coming to present the award.”
O’Neill said it is common practice at the school for representatives of organizations awarding scholarships to make the presentations to the winning students.
Tell Bishop Martin Amos that you support Keaton and to let the school honor its agreement.
