In 2003, Daniel Kubacki established the Helen Monkiewicz Kubacki Scholarship Fund For Mount Carmel Area Jr./Sr. High School in memory of his wife. Helen was a graduate of the Class of 1936 at Mount Carmel High School. She received her RN degree from Reading Hospital School of Nursing in 1943 and a BS in Nursing Education in 1968 from Wilkes College. She touched the lives of many through her nursing practice and teaching. Daniel Kubacki passed away in 2007.

The purpose of this fund is to provide scholarships to seniors who are graduating from Mount Carmel Area Jr./Sr. High School in Mount Carmel, Pennsylvania, and who are attending a two-year, four-year or hospital RN program upon graduation from high school. The student will be selected based on academic and extracurricular accomplishments, and financial need. The recipient shall be a better than average student academically, achieving a B average or above. The scholarship recipient shall be someone who is active in school and community activities and has a strong desire to become a nurse.

Applications will be available for interested students to pick up at the Mount Carmel High School Counseling Office in February and March. Application deadline: March 1st.
