This scholarship was set up in honor of our friend Marco “Marsh” whom we met while taking BIO 6. Marco was intelligent, optimistic, hard-working, and selfless. He often volunteered his time to participate in causes he believed in. One of Marco’s attributes we admired was his persistence. Despite many obstacles, Marco’s dedication to his studies and most importantly to his family never wavered. It is for this reason we have dedicated the scholarship in his name. We hope by doing so, Marco’s memory will live on.
