A memorial scholarship fund was established by the family and friends of Moshe Jamil Rogers (1977-1995) to commemorate the life of one of Aurora’s most promising student leaders.
Moshe Rogers was a student at Aurora Central Catholic High School where he excelled in track and basketball.
As a star athlete, he was being pursued by such prestigious universities as Georgetown and Notre Dame.
Moshe Rogers also was an inspirational role model for younger children who looked to him for guidance.
According to the Reverend Edward Gillespie, pastor of Our Lady of Good Counsel Church which Moshe attended, “Not in my memory…has the death of an individual touched and moved so many people.”
Scholarships from this fund are awarded to students graduating from Aurora Central High School who are able to demonstrate positive values in the areas of character and leadership.
