The Joseph Fanelli Scholarship
The Joseph Fanelli Scholarship was established in 2019 to assist graduating seniors from Stivers High School for the Arts. Joseph is a 1943 graduate of Stivers and has been an active supporter ever since. After his graduation from Stivers, Joseph was not able to go to college because World War ll was in full swing and he felt compelled to serve his country and so joined the US Navy.
After the war Joseph became a firefighter for the city of Dayton and eventually became Captain of his own fire house. Joseph has always held education in high esteem, and although he was not able to attend college his wish is that others may do so in his honor. Applicants must:
- Be a graduating senior from Stivers School for the Arts, Dayton, Ohio
- Be accepted and planning to attend a two- or four-year college or university
- Participate in extracurricular activities, community services, and/or employment
- Must demonstrate financial need
