St. Martin of Tours School, Gaithersburg, Maryland
Recipient of a George and Mary Kremer Foundation Grant
Kremer Foundation Grants are given to Catholic schools in the continental United States to provide tuition assistance based on financial need. Principals of the schools select the students who need tuition assistance, and no student names are ever announced. In keeping with this tradition, a Kremer Foundation grant was awarded to St. Martin of Tours School in Gaithersburg, Maryland: in October 2008, Sister Sharon Mihm and the pastor of the parish, Rev. Mark Brennan, gratefully accept the award for their school. St. Martin of Tours School enrolls approximately 225 students in grades K-8 and is located in an area of changing demographics with a student body representing diversity in background and ethnicity. The school is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and is part of the Archdiocese of Washington. Through the generosity of the Kremer Foundation, St. Martin of Tours has become part of the Foundation's program and now receives an annual grant for tuition assistance.
The Foundation presently funds scholarships in schools in the following states:
