A Message From Michael


To the Family and Friends of Joseph Ianelli,

First, I would like to thank each and every one of you for providing me with this life changing opportunity. This scholarship not only provided me with financial aid, but introduced me to the lives of many loving and caring people. I never had the privilege to meet Joe Ianelli, but I can see what kind of person he must have been by knowing all of you. His memory will always be a part of me and his legacy will always carry on through all of our efforts. During these past four years, I feel like I have become part of your family, and I hope you feel the same way about me. I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity and I plan on keeping in touch with all of you during my years at college.

Love,
Michael O’Rourke
