Justin is the son of Joey and Cecilia Richerzhagen. A graduate of Minor High School, Justin is a standout musician who served in the Minor band. He also plays in the "Absolute Presence" musical group at St. Patrick. He served the SPIRIT Youth Group at St. Patrick for many years and was recognized by the Catholic Diocese of Birmingham with this year's Alpha Award. Justin looks forward to college "as a way for me to further my skills as a student and also as a musician."

Knights of Columbus Council 10567 began awarding a scholarship to deserving high school seniors in 1995. Applicants are selected based on high academic achievement, outstanding service to Church, participation in Church youth activities and service to Community. In 1996 the award was renamed the Louis N. Muro Memorial Scholarship to honor Louis N. Muro, the founder and Charter Grand Knight of Council 10567. Thirty-two young people of St. Patrick have benefited from this scholarship since its inception. We are proud that our past recipients now serve as teachers, lawyers,  journalists, nurses, accountants, psychologists and in many other fields.
