John Adamcik Memorial Scholarship

The John Adamcik Memorial Scholarship was established by the Athletic Booster Club in the mid-1980s to honor a member of the Bishop Lynch community. Mr. Adamcik was a detective for the Dallas Police Department, who volunteered much of his time at Bishop Lynch as president of the booster club and as a vocal supporter of the school. It was through his assistance that Bishop Lynch continues to have a very good and close working relationship with the Dallas Police Department. He was an outstanding example of a leader for his three children, Mark (’82), Gary (’84) and Kimberly (’92). He succumbed to cancer on Dec. 31, 1985, but his legacy lives on through his children and this award named in his honor. The male nominee for the Adamcik Memorial Scholarship is a current Bishop Lynch senior who excels in community service, maintains a high grade point average and reflects good citizenship.

Diane Dooley Memorial Scholarship

The Diane Dooley Memorial Scholarship was established by the Athletic Booster Club in March 2016 to honor a dedicated three-year board member of the Bishop Lynch Athletic Booster Club. Ms. Dooley taught kindergarten in a Dallas ISD classroom for 30 years and earned accolades as Teacher of the Year. But, her greatest accomplishment was raising her one and only child, Ryan Dooley (’14) and current student at Texas A&M University in College Station. Diane spent countless hours volunteering for anything that bettered the BL community while setting an excellent Christian example for not only her son, but for the rest of us. She lived her life showing others how to treat one another and love unconditionally. If you had a son or daughter that was involved in our basketball program, chances are some of the photographs you cherish from game nights were taken by Diane as she became the unofficial photographer for the teams. She proudly served for three years as one of the Booster Club Sports Pass co-chairs. Her dedication to the BL community did not stop after Ryan graduated and she served her third and final year in the 2014-2015 school year. In August 2015, Diane was diagnosed with advanced esophageal cancer. Her faith never wavered as she fought valiantly for seven months. On Feb. 12, 2016, five days before she would have turned 57, our friend Diane passed away. The female nominee for the Diane Dooley Memorial Scholarship is a current Bishop Lynch senior who excels in community service, maintains a high grade point average and reflects good citizenship.
