Gabrielle Mohutsky, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Mohutsky, was awarded the Lorraine Button Tracy Scholarship at the Holy redeemer awards ceremony. The scholarship of one thousand dollars will be credited for each of the next four years to continue her studies at Holy Redeemer.
The scholarship was established in memory of Lorraine Button Tracy who attended St. Jude School graduating in 1966. She was a 1970 graduate of St. Ann’s Academy, Wilkes-Barre, and graduated from Bucknell University cum laude where she was a National Honor Finalist.
Lorraine was hired by Electronic Data Systems, and her whirlwind career took her to Iran, Holland, and finally Belgium.
During a vacation to Euro Disney, Paris, with her husband Michael, Lorraine had an allergic reaction to horses that triggered an asthma attack. She died suddenly at age 40.
In addition to her husband, Lorraine left behind two young sons, Max and Eamon. Max died just eleven months later of an asthma attack triggered by an allergy to milk.
The Max & Lorraine Foundation was formed and along with the American Lung Association, sponsors Camp AsthmaCadabra, the only camp where children with asthma can go to enjoy camping.
This year will be the 15th year for the camp. For more information, call 570-474-6282 ot the American Lung Association at 570-346-1784.
