OUR PROJECTS

Cathedral High School Endowed Memorial Tuition Assistance Fund

Kassie Braun was a member of the Cathedral High School class of 2015. She embodied Holy Cross core values during her time at Cathedral and continued to do so at St. Edward’s University in Austin, TX. 

Kassie was known by her family, friends and throughout the Cathedral community as a person who had great zeal for life. Cathedral has defined zeal as the desire to make God known, loved and served and Kassie did that by the way she interacted and treated people around her. She was truly a joy to be around and was willing to be transformed and to transform the world through God’s love.

To honor Kassie’s legacy, the Braun family has established the Kassie Braun ’15 Endowed Memorial Tuition Assistance Fund. The recipient of this grant is to be a student who embodies the Holy Cross core values and who has demonstrated a commitment to persevering through academic challenges. In addition, the recipient should strive to
be a positive example and inspiration to all in outstanding civic involvement, benevolent character and philanthropic endeavors to the betterment of their community. This endowed fund scholarship was established to ensure Kassie’s legacy and spirit will continue for many generations to come

KASSIE'S LIFE >

Kassandra “Kassie” Arielle Braun lived a vibrant life but also rejoiced in life’s simple pleasures. Like the simple and “little way” modeled by her chosen confirmation Saint Therese of Lisieux, the “Little Flower”.  Her life serves as an example for all of us to do little things with great love. Kassie embodied otherness versus selfishness and never met a stranger. In her short life, Kassie’s boundless soul eagerly traveled the world to touch as many people as she could with her joy and love. Like Kassie, we can give of our time, heart, treasure to help people in need of a smiling face, a warm meal, a hug, a roof over their head, a scholarship to travel the world and meet people far and wide and be an ambassador of love as Kassie was.
