On behalf of the Thomas C. Rotondo Scholarship Run Committee, Mrs. Anna Marie Rotondo presented a check for $2,000 to DeSales Catholic School on August 30th. These funds will be used to provide financial aid scholarships at the Catholic elementary school.
The funds were raised at the 2nd Annual Thomas C. Rotondo Scholarship Run on July 21st held in Lockport. The run, organized by the Rotondo family, is a way to commemorate the life and carry on the spirit of the late five-term Lockport mayor. Through the race efforts two scholarships are being established: one for a DeSales Catholic School student with financial need in the 2018-2019 school year and one for 2018 graduate of Lockport High School.
“Mr. Rotondo was a very respected and loved member of our community. He was an alumnus of DeSales Catholic High School and a member of our Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame. The run and scholarship are a wonderful way to remember him.” Stated Kim Knuutila, DeSales Director of Admissions & Advancement.
