Each year, the ETV Board awards a scholarship to an East Haven High School student who is planning to pursue studies in media. The award, the Patrick O'Leary Scholarship, is named for a long adored member of the East Haven community. Mr. O’Leary was much beloved by countless friends and associates for his warmth and compassion. And as a long serving journalist for the New Haven Register and other media outlets, his professionalism and dedication were greatly respected. ETV feels that these qualities, represented by this award, reflect the way in which these students have conducted themselves in their work at the high school and in our community.
Past recipients of this award include:
Litzy Garcia (2020), Christian Cunningham (2019), Adam Perrotti (2018), Jacob Zito (2017), Nicholas Maniscalco (2016), Alexandra Bardelli (2015), Molly Travaglino (2014), Ashley Mazzucco (2013), Melissa Morro (2012), Nicollette Riccio (2011), Janlee Castro and Theresa Vittorio (2010, shared), and Paula Caputo (2009).
