Our Congratulations to two Council 8157 Knights who have been awarded special honors & recognition.
On January 28 at Bishop Dunne Catholic School, our Brother Knight and Deacon Paul Wood was honored with an annual $40,000 scholarship named after him, the “Paul Wood Scholarship” from the University of Dallas. “I was totally amazed and grateful,” he said. “To have something like that done for you, I’m still dumbfounded.” Deacon Wood attended the University of Dallas where he majored in Psychology and minored in Theology. Deacon Wood also graduated in 1972 from Bishop Dunne where he currently serves as the school’s Director of Technology.
