This year’s recipients of The Emily C. Specchio Memorial Scholarship have been selected. The 2008-2009 applications were the most numerous and competitive yet. Congratulations to Virginia Tech students Anna Lashley, Christian Mason, and Caitlin Pecot!

The Emily C. Specchio Foundation is pleased to announce the full endowment of The Emily Carrigg Specchio Memorial Scholarship at Virginia Tech. This year we have reached the $100,000 mark which distinguishes the level of full endowment. A fully endowed scholarship will provide an entire year’s scholarship for a Virginia Tech student (or a semester of study for two students) starting in the 2009-2010 academic year.
A plaque commemorating this acheivement is permanently displayed in the Pamplin College of Business Building on the Virginia Tech campus in Blacksburg, VA. The Specchio family recently visited Blacksburg to view the plaque and receive a replica plaque at a black tie Pamplin scholarship event.
This accomplishment would never have been possible if it wasn’t for the generous contributions of the supporters of The Emily C. Specchio Foundation!
