Leo Vannoni was seven years old when he was diagnosed with Leukemia. After a long, hard battle fought, Leo succumbed to his illness in February of 2014. During his fight, the Bluffton Community came together in support of Leo and his family from fundraisers to helping out anyway they could. The family and friends of Leo have started this scholarship to ensure that his legacy remains.

The requirements of this scholarship:

1) The student is a graduating senior from any Beaufort County School.
2) The student has an unweighted GPA of 3.0 or higher.

3) The student provides two letters of recommendation.

We would like for the recipient of this scholarship to exemplify in their lives and share similar characteristics of Leo:  Athleticism, Academic Brightness, Resilience and Giving.

The family would also like to know if the applicant is a child of a first responder or has suffered financial burdens from medical expenses.

Please send your two letters of recommendation and a copy of your academic transcript to:
