Patricia (“Patty”) O’Mara-Croft Scholarship Fund
Patricia (“Patty”) O’Mara-Croft was a proud and dedicated Fine Arts teacher in District 308 for more than two decades, and taught at both high schools (at OEHS since it opened in 2004). She lost a long battle with heart disease on December 24, 2020. Her family has established a scholarship fund to award annual one-time scholarships to those art students whose work improved most over their high school career. Patty took great pride in finding diamonds in the rough and making them shine.
Oswego Foundation for Educational Excellence (OFEE) will administer the fund and facilitate presentation of the scholarship. A not-for-profit organization, The Oswego Foundation for Educational Excellence is incorporated in the State of Illinois and files as a qualified 501(c)(3) organization with the Internal Revenue Service.
