The Terry Doherty Memorial Scholarship has been established to provide financial assistance and reward young artists of outstanding aptitude and promise in the visual or media arts.
Terry Doherty, a proud member of the IC class of 1991, enjoyed his years at IC more than most! Though he never achieved high accolades for his art, on the football field or in his classes, he is remembered as a Leader....in kindness...in fun...and in life by a former teacher.
After leaving IC, Terry became a commercial fisherman. Along with five shipmates, Terry was lost at sea on November 15, 1995 off the coast of Donegal in Ireland's worst fishing tragedy. After months of searching, The Carrickatine, and its crew of six were never found. Terry enjoyed his art classes at IC and continued drawing after graduation. There are many sketches still around of Irish scenery, George H. Bush and even Charlie Brown with Terry's signature.
A partial scholarship (up to $2,500) will be awarded to a current sophomore art student which will be applied toward his/her Junior year tuition. The applicant must have a verified financial need and a passion for visual or media arts.
