Joseph T. Gnerre Memorial Music Scholarship

posted Mar 18, 2019, 5:19 AM by Polly Camire
Deadline: Received by May 1, 2019.  Award: Variable.  Applicants must be graduating seniors who plan to pursue a field of study in Music.  This scholarship was established in 1995 to honor Guiseppe's Pizzaria founder, Joe "Guiseppe" Gnerre, Sr., who died suddenly in February of 1995.  An event was secretly organized to pay tribute to him, with over 50 musicians participating.  At this event, a mysterious "black hat" was passed around for donations, and thus this scholarship was born.  The Gnerre family continues to honor him with an annual event that raises money for this scholarship.  Applications may be picked up in the School Counseling office.
