Fr. John G. Sturm, S.J. '35 Legacy Fund

"Life is a dance. Dance the Dance. Do not sit on the sidelines. Life is not a dress rehearsal."

Fr. John G. Sturm, S.J. ’35 was a standout athlete in his days as a Canisius High School student. After his ordination, he served as Prefect of Discipline at the school for 19 years. His love of sports and care for others lives on through the Fr. John G. Sturm, S.J. '35 Legacy Fund.

The Fr. John G. Sturm, S.J. '35 Legacy Fund was created to build the endowment of the Fr. Sturm Scholarship, provide tuition assistance for NativityMiguel Middle School students who enroll at Canisius High School, and supports athletic programs at Canisius.
