Samantha Cothran was a cherished member of the Nardin Academy Class of 2007, who died tragically in 2012. A scholarship in memory of Samantha was established creating the Spirit of Nardin Award.
In the spirit of Nardin’s value to “ignite possibilities,” the award will be given to a high school junior who demonstrates intellectual curiosity and exemplifies excellence in the classroom. She will exhibit a passion for and focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math), a love for her classmates and a unique energy dedicated to the betterment and advancement of Nardin and its community. The establishment of the Samantha Cothran ’07 Endowed Scholarship will preserve Samantha’s legacy at Nardin by opening doors for future generations.
A Mass celebrating Samantha’s life and legacy will be held on Wednesday, November 1 and the recipient of the annual Samantha Cothran ’07 Spirit of Nardin Award will be announced at the time.
