YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Sister Jerome Corcoran received a check to help her continue decades of doing charitable work.

Sister Nancy Dawson with the Urusline Center and Richard Scarcella the Chairman of the Brier Hill Cultural Center presented the check to Sister Jerome.

It was given on behalf of the Conrad Hilton Foundation based in California.

Money will be used to help poor families in emergencies and help poor urban kids enter college or trade schools.

"A big part of that this is helping those kids in college because they have emergencies too," said Sister Jerom.
