This week was an especially memorable one for the 47 children of Osborn employees who were awarded financial gifts by residents of Sterling Park, The Osborn’s Independent Living community, to pursue higher education. This is the 15th year of the annual Academic Achievement Award presentation.

The effort has been led by Sterling Park resident Dr. Edward Pasciuti, a psychologist with a 39-year career as Head of the Guidance Department in New Rochelle Public Schools. “It is deeply gratifying to make gifts that help bright young people afford the growing cost of higher education,” he said. “For many employees, this is the first family member to attend college.”

Ninety-two residents donated to the fund, which is administered by The Osborn Foundation.
