– Bishop J. Terry Steib, S.V.D.
In the late 1990’s, Bishop J. Terry Steib, S.V.D. had a vision. Urban Catholic schools that had previously been closed due to low enrollment numbers and lack of funding would be reopened to serve those with the greatest need—the children of urban Memphis neighborhoods. The goal was to create a learning environment where children and their families could learn, and grow and be loved. They were named in honor of the Jubilee year, a year of mercy for the underserved. Blue Streak Scholarship Fund, Inc. in Memphis, TN provides financial support and tuition assistance to the students of Jubilee Schools.
