generosityA retired Livermore resident donated to the Pedrozzi Foundation in March 2016 to support two deserving students’ college pursuits. The donor wanted to make a significant donation, enabling these  students to pursue their college dreams and goals. Having researched national scholarship foundations and then realizing that the Pedrozzi Foundation could facilitate the goal of funding scholarships for targeted hometown students, the donor was simply overjoyed.

Wishing to remain anonymous, this community member stated in a note to be passed along to the Promise Scholarship recipients, “I am grateful for the opportunity to help you along your way.” The note also included the encouragement to “Be all that you can be.”

This generous donor joins several Livermore community members who have also funded scholarships.  All share Mario Pedrozzi’s belief in the value of education and desire to help Livermore youth to realize their full potential.

The Promise Scholarship recipients, along with all other 2016 Pedrozzi Scholarship awardees, will be announced in May.
