Preference to a student who exemplifies Steve's many attributes, most notable of which was his positive outlook on life. Throughout his life he went above and beyond to be all-inclusive with the many people he met from the time he was a young boy, through his school years, his law practice, coaching and volunteering. Steve contracted polio when he was 2 years old in 1953. While this affected his gait, he never considered himself handicapped. Because he was a polio survivor he always overcame adversity with positivity and a strong drive to succeed through hard work and helping others. These characteristics shaped his success in life, and his family would like to see these qualities in future scholarship recipients.
Graduation from high school is the first step out of Melrose and into the world. This is a significant event in your life, and the people who support the Scholarship Fund are happy to join with the faculty of Melrose High School and the community at large in wishing you well.
The sponsor of this scholarship is interested in knowing your plans for the future and would appreciate hearing from you. They enjoy receiving a thank you from the scholarship recipients with some general background, such as what school you are attending next year, activities you pursued at Melrose High School, and what you plan to study.
