This scholarship is given in memory of Charles Longen, Sr. (1910-1977).
Born in Clifton Heights, PA and a long time resident of Collingdale, PA, Charles, Sr. was an avid baseball fan and played in the Delco League in the 1930s. His son Charlie Longen, Jr. is the owner of Longen Group, LLC., an independent insurance agency headquartered in Kennett Square, PA. Although Charlie lost his father unexpectedly one year after graduating from Monsignor Bonner High School, he credits his father’s devotion to family and support of his Catholic education to his success today.
