Local Students Awarded Italian Festival Scholarships
While many associate the Upper Ohio Valley Italian Heritage Festival with fun and Italian food, it has a more serious side as well.
14 deserving students received honors from the festival's organizers. Thanks to support from up and down the Ohio Valley, each student received a $1,000 scholarship to help out with their higher education.
The festival organizers also announced Doctor John DeBlasis and Gilda Reed as 2013 Italian-Americans of the year.
