Brother Robb Wallace Scholarship Fund
The Br. Robb Wallace, FSC Scholarship is a newly established annual award presented by the Cathedral High School Alumni Association to selected students of Cathedral High School to be used towards tuition and school fees.

Per Brother’s request, the scholarship will be awarded to incoming freshmen and outgoing seniors based upon their economic need and personal recommendations from school administration. An initial target of $10,000 will look to fund a much needed $500 disbursement to a total of 20 students.

About Br. Robb Wallace, FSC
Brother Robb dedicated a combined 19 years on our campus with his first stint running from 1980 to 1993 and his second stay running from 2013 until his passing on May 4, 2020.
It’s extremely difficult to try and measure the impact that Brother Robb had on our campus and the many young men that he taught throughout the years. Brother’s ability to connect with his students was second to none and his spiritual impression on all of us is truly immeasurable.
To all of those Phantoms that attended Cathedral during his tenures and were blessed to have been taught by him, Brother was a mentor, a teacher, a Dean of Discipline, a leader, a true example of faith and above all else, a Brother.
Born in 1949, the son of Maria Guadalupe Baez and Harold W. Wallace, Brother was one of twelve children. Raised and educated in the states of Idaho and Oregon, Brother entered into the Brothers of the Christian Schools in 1971 in Napa, California. He took his first vows in 1974 and, within the warm confines of Cathedral’s old gym, took his final vows in 1983.
Throughout his academic career, Brother Robb earned 5 Masters of Arts Degrees from GTU (Graduate Theological Union) a prestigious consortium in Berkeley, LaSalle University in Philadelphia, Cal State Los Angeles, Christian Brothers University in Memphis and St. Michael’s College in Vermont. During his illustrious teaching career, Brother taught at De LaSalle High School in Concord, San Joaquin Memorial High School in Fresno, LaSalle High School in Milwaukie, OR, Sacred Heart Cathedral Prep in San Francisco and of course, Cathedral High School in Los Angeles.
Other assignments included Principal at St. Joseph School in Sunnyside, WA, Staff Member at the LaSallian Educational Opportunities Center in Oakland, CA and Staff Member at the Christian Brothers’ Retreat House for Students in St. Helena, CA.
