THE STORY:

My cousin Kathy Bantis perished in the first attack on the Twin Towers on 9/11, at the age of 44. She was there for only one day of training. That one day cut her life short and changed ours forever. To honor Kathy's memory, her high school classmate and class president, Paul DiUlio (our dads were good friends, to boot), started a scholarship for Manchester Central High School (New Hampshire) students who have emigrated to the US in search of a better life, seeking opportunities to grow, excel, and make a difference, as Kathy did. Kathy emigrated to the US from a poor village in Greece. As an adult, she gave back to her village by funding the construction of a church and a school for disabled children (how's that for a high achiever?!) Now I am asking for your help - a donation of $10, $20, or more - for this scholarship to recognize a deserving student who aspires to be the best they can be.  Eucharisto! (Or as they say in English, "thank you")
