Sean O'Malley Scholarship Fund

The purpose of the Sean Michael OMalley Memorial Scholarship is to honor former Bishop Ireton student Sean Michael OMalley (’85-’86). Sean was a fierce competitor who participated in both the football and wrestling programs at Bishop Ireton. Sean's family and friends created this scholarship to honor Sean by providing a scholarship to a male student who exhibits Sean’s inspirational motivation, compassion, desire to help others succeed, athletic ability, and generosity. Additionally, the scholarship recognizes the importance of community service and encourages those active in supporting their community. The scholarship will be need based and will provide partial support for a male Bishop Ireton student who demonstrates financial need. 

The scholarship is provided through the generosity of Sean’s family, former classmates and teammates, his clients, and his many friends and fans to recognize the qualities which enabled him to move from a “walk-on” to an ALL-SEC defensive lineman and member of the ALL-SEC Academic Team and put his passion into successful practice as he created a world-renowned fitness company - Cardio Coach.  

The scholarship(s) will be awarded annually in the amount of a minimum of $1,000 and a maximum of 50 percent of tuition for one or more eligible students, for each school year at Bishop Ireton. It is open to male students who will have completed at least one year at Bishop Ireton and have participated in the football and/or the wrestling programs.
