$1,500 LINDSEY RENEE CIANCIOLO FAMILY - MEMORIAL FUND AWARD
The Lindsey Renee Cianciolo Family Memorial Fund began sponsoring two $1,500 Michigan scholarships in 2007. The scholarships are financed by Lindsey’s father, Michael, and her sisters, Allie and Mary Cianciolo. Lindsey died on January 5, 2005 at the age of 20 in a motor vehicle accident which was largely caused by underage drinking. In addition to honoring Lindsey’s memory, the Lindsey Renee Cianciolo Family Memorial Award rewards students taking the initiative to publicly denounce underage drinking, and recognizes the winners for the strength and courage they exhibit in this endeavor so that fewer lives will be lost in the future.
