The next Scholarship Dinner will be held in March 2018

One Dynamic Community, One Exciting Evening

On the occasion of Mariann Hoag’s passing in 2009, we honored her unceasing commitment to our students and renamed the financial aid program in her honor: The Mariann Hoag Financial Aid Grant Award Program. Her more than 60-year oversight of the program fortified an essential tenet of the Roeper philosophy in very practical terms and made our school accessible to those who might not otherwise have had the means to attend. It is fair to say that she changed the course of lives of generations of Roeper families because of her selfless dedication and conviction.

We would like to warmly thank those who knew and so loved Mariann and who were so beloved by her.
