In honor of Catholic schools week, St. Timothy School hosted a Student vs. Faculty/Alumni basketball game last week, raising over $10,000 to set up an educational scholarship fund as a memorial to pay tribute to the late Barbara Mertens, a St. Timothy teacher who lost her battle against cancer this past September. With over 20 years of experience as a teacher and administrator in the Arlington diocese, Mertens was an inspiration to everyone she met. Her joy was bringing Christ to the children each and every day at school. She also believed every child should have the opportunity to receive a Catholic education if they desired one. Her motto was "God is good, all the time, God is good … and so are you."
