In 2018, the Debbie Kapina Memorial Scholarship was established in memory of a longtime friend and colleague of the St. Luke Community. For those who were blessed to know Debbie, knew she was fiercely passionate in everything she did. Debbie was a source of light to everyone who surrounded her and radiated positivity in unmeasurable amounts. She was tremendously dedicated to St. Luke School and its students, as an employee in her early years, and then as a devoted volunteer. Rarely, was Debbie seen without a smile on her face or a laugh escaping her. 

Catholic education was always important to Debbie and she was instrumental in establishing scholarships in her early years at St. Luke School. It was Debbie's desire to continue this legacy.

Debbie will be remembered by all for her infectious personality; she will be remembered by her students for the school plays she organized and pumpkin pancakes she made, but mostly, she will be remembered for the dedicated and loving Mother, Grandmother and Friend that she was to so many. May only the fondest memories flood the minds of those who remember Debbie.
