The Olivia Rose Belfiglio -- Memorial Scholarship

Friends and family of Olivia Rose Belfiglio, announce The Olivia Rose Belfiglio Memorial Scholarship for Kingston and Saugerties High School Seniors. Olivia was the Daughter of Ulster County Legislator Carl Belfiglio (R) Port Ewen and Dale Winchester of Saugerties.

Olivia lost her life June 4th 2010 while hiking in the Devils Kitchen area of Greene County. The Scholarship was organized by friends of Olivia, Amy Buono, Katie Ehmann and Grace Schneller and many more.

The 2011 Olivia Rose Belfiglio Memorial scholarship is the result of the proceeds and donations from the 2010 LIVI-LOVE 4K race in memory of Olivia Belfiglio. Friends and family with the support of the Onteora Runner’s Club offered this race in August 2010 to celebrate Olivia’s life. Thanks to nearly 400 participants, volunteers, and generous sponsors, significant scholarship money was raised in Olivia’s memory.

Up to six $700 scholarships will be offered to Kingston or Saugerties High School seniors planning to attend a two or four year college in the Fall of 2011. Applicants need to demonstrate interest and participation in athletics, the arts, community activities, and academics.

The Scholarship will have six awards of $ 700.00 each. To apply see the Saugerties and Kingston High School guidance offices for an application.

Deadline for submission is May 12th 2011.
