AUBURN — The first Anne Elizabeth Murphy Lampal scholarship of $500 has been awarded to Theresa Therriault of Monmouth, a junior at Saint Dominic Regional High School.

Anne Elizabeth Murphy Lampal, a member of the St. Dom’s class of 1984, was profoundly shaped by her years at the school. The teachers and fellow students who knew her were themselves shaped by Lampal’s own forceful and engaging personality. She personified excellence in the areas of leadership, service, faith and study, creativity and humor.

After living with cancer for more than five years, Lampal died at home on February 25, 2008. She served as a chaplain at nursing homes, hospices and hospitals in the greater Boston and Washington, D.C. areas, providing interfaith services and bereavement counseling.

A scholarship fund has been established in her memory by her family to benefit students at St. Dom’s. Contact the Alumni/Development Office at 782-6911, ext. 2111 for more information about how to contribute to the fund in Lampal’s honor.
