This year the Italian Cultural & Community Center will be awarding two $5,000 Guariglia/Pasquinelli Memorial Scholarships. These scholarships are funded by ICCC Member Vincent Guariglia and named to honor Michael and John C. Guariglia, his late son and brother, and Oriano Pasquinelli, his recently deceased friend. The first award is open to all 2010/2011 high school graduates who will be attending a four-year institution and the second open to 2010/2011 high school graduates who will be attending the University of St. Thomas. This year’s applications must be received at the ICCC office no later than 5:00 p.m. May 15, 2011.
Vincent Guariglia is no stranger to scholarship awards and the Italian Cultural and Community Center. Thirteen years ago he created the Torre/Sendrovitz Memorial Scholarships which were awarded to two deserving students for whom college attendance would have been a distant dream without his generous and life-altering donations. ICCC was honored to serve as the conduit for those awards then. We are again grateful for and honored by his generosity and regard for ICCC’s growing Scholarship Program.
