On Wednesday evening, June 15, Joseph Marianacci of Riverside was presented with the ONS (Orthopaedic and Neurosurgery Specialists) Scholarship during the 39th Greenwich Scholarship Association (GSA) awards ceremony. Joseph, an 18 year-old graduating senior of Greenwich High School, will attend St John’s University in the fall. The award will be applied toward his college tuition.
This year, the Greenwich Scholarship Association awarded $511,600 to 122 high school seniors. The sponsors of the awards included civic groups, local businesses, families with memorial awards and individuals providing scholarships to students from Greenwich schools for their first year in college.
Founded in 1978, the Greenwich Scholarship Association provides need-based college scholarships for graduating seniors living in Greenwich, Connecticut or attending Greenwich public, private or parochial schools. The mission of the all-volunteer organization is to match students in need with companies offering scholarships in order to further the educational opportunities of Greenwich students.
