Established in 2004 by the family of alumni parent Janet Pessagno, this Scholarship Fund was established to honor Ms. Pessagno’s dedication to the field of philanthropy and her renowned generosity. Ms. Pessagno dedicated her life to public service through the many organizations for whom she volunteered and was employed by to fundraise critical resources in the non-profit sector. In 2003, breast cancer took the life of Janet Pessagno at the age of 61 years old. Help us remember Tony's mother by contributing to the scholarship in her name.
