The Aim Higher Foundation granted the first 22 John Nasseff Scholarship Fund scholarships to students at St. Agnes School in St. Paul, a school he supported over the past decade before his death in February.

The students were recognized Sept. 12 at the school for receiving the $1,000 scholarships from Aim Higher. The St. Paul-based nonprofit that supports Catholic schools, partnered with the Nasseff scholarship fund, which began in the spring.

Nasseff served as an executive at West Publishing in St. Paul until it was sold to Thomson Reuters, which made Nasseff a millionaire. His longtime friend, Thomson Reuters vice president of facility operations Tom Walrath, founded the scholarship fund.

Nasseff began many philanthropic endeavors, including major gifts to help keep St. Agnes School open in 2007 and expand in 2015 with the Ubel Activity Center.
