The Bell-Kakascik Scholarship Fund for Catholic Schools was established to support the education of Catholic children who have financial need due to an unforeseen family crisis or financial difficulty and who are attending Parkersburg Catholic High School.

The Fund was established in honor of Father Edward Bell, former pastor of Saint Margaret Mary Church in Parkersburg, WV, and Monsignor Edward Kakascik, former pastor Saint Mary Church in Marietta, OH. They were both tireless supporters of Catholic schools. Together, they served their communities and schools a total of 89 years - Father Bell for 40 years and Monsignor Kakascik for 49 years.
