This scholarship was created by Marie Biancuzzo to honor the memory of her father, Felix Biancuzzo, a truly self-made man who pursued opportunities for learning throughout the course of his lifetime. Born in 1915, Felix attended school and began working at age 9 to support his immigrant mother and siblings prior to and throughout the Great Depression. Later, he married the former Maria Cristini and together they raised three children. In recognition of his outstanding performance as a Ford franchisee, he was personally presented with an award by Henry Ford II. A dedicated worker throughout his life, Felix frequently gave his time, talents, and financial resources to the community.
