This scholarship was created in memory of Barbara Ann Romano, a devoted mother and grandmother known by all for her generous spirit. Barbara greatly valued education and had a keen interest in writing, particularily journaling her battle with bipolar disorder in hopes of one day sharing her story with the world.
This scholarship is open to graduating seniors from Canton High School with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75. Student applicants will be asked to write a short essay to a prompt inspired by Barbara's life dream. Applicants must have been accepted at or applied to any college, university, or trade school (either full or part time) for the upcoming fall semester.
