The Frank DeLorenzo Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Frank DeLorenzo Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Frank DeLorenzo Memorial Scholarship Fund celebrates the life of Frank DeLorenzo, who, to my mind, was the most creative member of the Leonia High School Class of 1964. His playful illustrations enlivened the yearbook and The Leonian. While a fifth-grader at Anna C Scott elementary school, Frankie wrote what would soon become the school’s official song—the same uplifting words and melody that are still sung at ACS, over sixty years later. His wide-ranging artistic talents, coupled with an inimitable, buoyantly mischievous sense of humor, made him an inspiration to all who knew him. It is Frankie’s spirit, his love of life as well as his aesthetic agility, that we are honoring with this award, to be given on an annual basis to the LHS senior who best demonstrates talent and ambition as an artist, musician, or writer.
