The Wielgus Family and the Michael J. Wielgus II Foundation Award Scholarship

The Wielgus Family and the Michael J. Wielgus II Foundation are honored to award a scholarship to a U.S. PARMA player, who is graduating in the 2016 class. As many of you know, Michael lost his courageous battle and left us much too soon. Our lives will never be the same. As we struggle with living our lives without him, we search for ways to keep his memory alive. We thought about what meant the most to him and how he would want to be remembered.

The U.S. PARMA family was something that Michael treasured greatly. Honoring him with this scholarship is something our family is proud of. This year's recipient of the MJW II scholarship is Erica Balsamo of the U18 Girls Tempesta Team. Erica is respected on the soccer field and in the classroom. She has shown outstanding leadership qualities. Her teammates and coaches respect her abilities and are appreciative of the example that she sets for others. Congratulations to Erica and the entire 2016 graduating class from U.S. PARMA. We HOPE you continue to strive for all your dreams and make a difference in the world.

Find COURAGE to become who you want to be.
Let your FAITH be bigger than any of your fears.
