In their combined 50 years teaching at Xavier, Charles and Anne Cusick left strong impressions on countless biology students. So their six children—Tim Cusick, Kathleen Cusick, Dr. Brian Cusick, Norah Cusick Mock, Kevin Cusick and Patrick Cusick—wanted to say thanks. Urged by Brian’s wife, Jamie, they decided to give others the same opportunity their parents gave them—a Xavier education. So the Cusick clan pooled their resources and established the Charles and Anne Cusick Biology Scholarship for students in the natural sciences.
The scholarship goes to a student in biology. But, says Mock, the fund doesn’t have to stay all in the family. Any of the Cusicks’ former students who were also influenced and wish to contribute to the scholarship may do so.
