Catherine Franciosi Groleau
The Catherine Franciosi Groleau Memorial Scholarship was established by Rodney J. Groleau in 2022 in memory of his wife Cathy. During her 40-year career Cathy taught high school in metro Detroit, with the majority of her years at Grosse Ile High School. Affectionately called “Miss Fran” by her students, Cathy had the remarkable ability to bring out the best in each of them. In addition to teaching history, government, and economics, Cathy was a yearbook advisor, coordinated field trips overseas, and was a drivers training instructor. Rodney established this scholarship to continue Cathy’s legacy of helping every student reach his or her potential. The award is available to any NMC student with financial need.
