Senior Class Legacy Program

The Senior Class Legacy scholarship program began in 1989 with three seniors who had the vision to leave a legacy for future Toreros. Sam Attisha '89, David Reiling '89 and Kerry O'Heany Reiling '89 created this scholarship program, by students for students, to ensure that the USD experience would be available for future students. The original vision of the scholarship, and part of the current criteria, is that it would be given to students who have financial need and are making a lasting impact on the University.
