Antonia Dellas Memorial Scholarship

June Danby and Pat Pearse Education Scholarship

Martha & Oliver Hansen Memorial Scholarship

 

 

Antonia Dellas Memorial Scholarship

 

This scholarship, established by John J. Dellas, in memory of his wife. "Antonia (Toni) lived her life by helping others in so many ways and always found time to help those in need. One path Toni chose to practice this was her career of working with children with special needs. I believe that the scholarship recipients who follow and stay true to this path will not only contribute to society, but will also discover the joy and inner peace derived from guiding, helping, teaching, listening to and learning from those who are in need, challenged or just growing up. I can't think of a better way to memorialize Toni than by helping others to follow her path, that is, one of performing angel's work."  --John Dellas
