The scholarship honors the memory of Guido Caldarazzo, a local educator and community advocate who impacted countless students by his attention and intention to children and families.
It was created to honor a young man or woman who has contributed to the positive culture of their school and community in small ways. It is a scholarship to recognize someone who has overcome adversity, perhaps in some unconventional way, and who may otherwise go unrecognized. It is a scholarship to assist in the next chapter of a deserving student's life.
The scholarship is available to students who received a diploma, alternate diploma or GED from a Salem-Keizer School District high school or diploma from Blanchet Catholic School.
Like many people, Guido was determined to make the world a better place. Unlike some, he succeeded. It is our intent to keep the scholarship fully funded to continue his legacy and support the academic dreams of future Guido's. We have enclosed a donation envelope. Please fill it out to demonstrate your commitment to our community's future and keep Guido's dreams alive.
