Ray Brustman Scholarship

Raymond Brustman's entire teaching career was spent at St. Augustine's — forty-two and a half years, from 1927 to the closing of the school in 1969. He epitomized so thoroughly the spirit of Christian community and humanistic pursuit that his image and that of the school merge inextricably; he was St. Augustine's. While he taught a variety of subjects, Latin was his passion.

Alumni from different decades are quick to concur that Mr. Brustman was the walking exemplar of everything that was warm and wonderful about their high school experience; he was their academic mentor, par excellence, but most importantly through his personal interest and care, their counselor, their friend, their “Mister Chips.”

The endowed Ray Brustman Scholarship will be awarded to an entering Loughlin Freshman student and awarded annually each academic year providing the recipient maintains academic and need based qualification. At the present time, this scholarship is funded at 50 percent of the annual tuition for Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School.
