“My college education helped me tremendously, and I attribute much of my career and personal success to the fact that I attended a top university. Now I have the means to give back, and through the Foundation, I have discovered a way to make an impact locally. Specifically, through my estate, I have established endowed scholarships for students like me—who like math and science—in order to help them become the engineers, scientists, and technology experts our country so desperately needs.
Supporting students now, by funding annual STEM scholarships, and into the future through the endowed scholarships brings me great satisfaction. I am pleasantly surprised at how much fun and personally rewarding it has been to establish this scholarship. Expanding the legacy that Mario Pedrozzi left our community just feels right.”
