Bright future

    At a time when Catholic schools across the region are closing their doors, a new scholarship fund is trying to revive Catholic education for underprivileged children.  The BLOCS Bright Futures Scholarship Fund will launch Wednesday, when it will award two year scholarships to 100 children attending “underperforming or unsafe schools,” according to the fund’s officials.  They’re being funded by a bequest from the late Robert C. Dunn of Bryn Mawr.
