The Verona Chapter of UNICO National has awarded seven $1,000 scholarships to local graduating seniors Emma Newkirk, Nicolas Freschi, Ryan Denora, Kim Ann Castellanos, Donna Jo DiNorcia, Gopi Patolia and Mark Bovich. The first six will receive their awards at Senior Awards Night, Thursday, June 2 at Verona High School. Bovich, a student at St. Peter’s Prep, will receive his award separately.

Each student had to submit an application, proof of college acceptance, a transcript and an essay to be considered for a scholarship. Sal Ferruggia, UNICO’s scholarship chair, said “The committee was very impressed with the credentials of every applicant and would like to wish all students the best of luck in their educational endeavors.”

UNICO is the largest Italian American service organization in the country. For further information about UNICO, contact Chapter President Linda-Gail Alati at 973-857-4530 or [email protected].
