TOM GIBALA SCHOLARSHIP FUND

Mr. Tom Gibala was a teacher at Seneca who died of Leukemia.  Mr. Gibala was an avid sports fan and also a coach. He loved to work with young people and encouraged them to become involved in athletic activities.  We honor his memory with a scholarship fund that provides financial assistance to students wanting to participate in extra-curricular activities.   An application form has been created on which a student must write a short essay about why they would like to participate in the activity. The form then must be signed by a parent to verify financial need and then turned into the office.  The usual amount awarded is half of the total cost to participate.
