Mrs. Margaret Pic-Kell was a teacher and principal at Christ the King School from 1973 until her death in 1999. Her hard work, dedication to her students, and passion for providing high-quality education made a difference at Christ the King School and in the CK community.
It is in this spirit that a scholarship fund was created in her memory. This fund awards scholarships to current CK students entering 2nd – 8th grade who model leadership, citizenship, service to others, and academic excellence.
