Kathy Hickey Monti’s limitless love and passion for helping others was apparent to everybody she met. Her pride for North Catholic began in 1973, when her high school closed and she enrolled in the first co-ed class at North as a junior. Kathy led the charge to keep her school’s basketball team together. As a standout guard and the very first team captain of North’s first women’s basketball program, Kathy and her fellow Trojanettes began a women’s basketball dynasty that is alive and continues to thrive today. Following her graduation from North in 1975, Kathy played basketball in college and served as team captain and leader. Soon, she was recruited to come back to North and take on the role of Assistant Basketball Coach for the girl’s team and with Coach Don Barth, her mentor, friend and former coach, led them to win multiple state championships. When CWNC opened in Cranberry Township, Kathy continued to volunteer her time at the new school that she loved so dearly until her last breath. In 2017, just before her death, Kathy was voted unanimously into the North Catholic Hall of Fame. Kathy will long be remembered for her impact on hundreds of lives as a teacher, an assistant basketball coach and female role model for girls in athletics. To continue Kathy’s legacy and mission in life of helping others, a scholarship has been established in her name. The purpose of the Kathy Monti Memorial Scholarship is to provide financial support for a young woman who possesses the same leadership qualities and passion for basketball that Kathy demonstrated in her life. In order to finance this scholarship and celebrate Kathy’s life, we hope you can join us by donating here to raise the necessary funds.
