The Peter J. McGrail Scholarship was established by Paylocity in 2017 in honor of their late CFO. The award was created in Peter’s legacy to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college, upholding Peter’s steadfast belief that learning and curiosity propel lives.
May those who receive this annual scholarship embrace learning as a lifelong pursuit, capitalizing on their potential and the power of education to become lifelong learners, just like Peter.
