The scholarship is made in honor of Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Brumbach. Both Catherine and Joseph Brumbach were involved in the field of education. Mrs. Brumbach was a dedicated and devoted teacher in the Tolland Public School System. Mr. Brumbach graduated from a private Catholic High School and was indebted to the school for the financial assistance he received in order to complete his studies. He considered this to be a critical piece in allowing him to mature as a Catholic and in his chosen profession of climatology. It was Joseph and Catherine’s intent to share a portion of their legacy in providing financial assistance in order for students to continue their Catholic education.
