Anupom Ghosh '90 Memorial Endowed Scholarship

This scholarship was established in loving memory of Anupom Ghosh, whose life was tragically cut short at 49 years old by a drunk driver on November 29, 2021.

Anupom Ghosh was born on July 17, 1972, in Eugene, Oregon.  Anupom graduated from Our Lady of Good Counsel High School in 1990 and went on to attend the University of Maryland at College Park, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering.  After working for a few years and garnering real world experience, he continued his pursuit of higher education, again at the University of Maryland, with a Master’s degree in Computer Management Systems.  Anupom worked in the IT field as a Senior Software Engineer for SAIC in Virginia.

Anupom embodied kindness and generosity and found comfort in his deep sense of spirituality.  As a devoted son, he took care of and looked after his elderly parents in every way.  As a loving brother and uncle, he enjoyed spending quality time with his family.  Anupom found passion in food and reveled in discovering new, unique restaurants with exquisite cuisine.  He was an avid reader and acquired a wealth of knowledge and perspectives across a wide range of subject areas.  No matter the topic, he loved engaging with others who shared his passion in thoughtful conversation.  He was extremely loved and respected by all who had the good fortune of knowing him.

Anupom cherished his years at Good Counsel and genuinely believed that Good Counsel helped him find his potential.  Anupom participated in numerous activities including the Speech and Debate Team, Critical Analysis Club, and the National Honors Society.  He was also the Captain of the Math Team during his senior year.  Anupom developed many meaningful and lasting friendships while at Good Counsel.  As an alumnus, he praised Good Counsel as “the gift that keeps on giving.”

Anupom’s family established this scholarship to ensure that Good Counsel continues to be the gift that keeps on giving for many years to come.
