The Michael F. Lynch ’86 Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Michael F. Lynch Scholarship Fund was established by his brother and sisters through the generous support of his extended family and friends. “Big Mike” as he was fondly known was last seen rescuing people from an elevator in the South Tower of the World Trade Center after the attacks on September 11, 2001. Michael and his seven siblings were raised by his parents, Catherine and Danny (SFP Class of ‘47), in Flushing, Queens. In 1986, Big Mike became a proud graduate of St. Francis Prep where he had studied, played basketball and made many friends. After graduation he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from SUNY Albany and went on to become a member of the FDNY (Engine 54, Ladder 4,Battalion 9). Big Mike loved sports, the fire department and St. Francis Prep but was truly devoted to his wife, Denise, and two sons, Michael and Jack. This scholarship fund is designed to keep Michael’s memory alive in the spirit of the Franciscan traditions by enabling deserving students to attend his beloved alma mater.
