Congratulations out tonight to cadet member Kaitlyn Valendo of Fords, NJ on your graduation from Union Catholic High School, and being awarded the Kevin Apuzzio Memorial Foundation Scholarship.
Kevin Apuzzio was a member of Union Catholic Class of 2002 and a firefighter with the East Franklin Fire Department. On April 11, 2006, Kevin gave his life in the line of duty while attempting to save the life of another. Kevin was a person of deep faith and a model of courage and perseverance. He was committed to helping others and worked hard to make a difference in his community.
The Kevin A Apuzzio Memorial Award is presented to an industrious senior who, like Kevin, is committed to his or her studies and dedicated to service and who has shown this commitment through his or her work as a volunteer in the medical field. Kaitlyn received a $750 award.
EMT Valendo joined SBES as a cadet of Clinton First Aid & Rescue Squad in January 2019, and has served as one of our more active Cadet EMTs.
