April 8, 2018
This is always, by far, our proudest moment of the entire year. And this year was no different. Our hearts soar as we're able to present scholarships to three very deserving recipients in memory of Nick - a son, brother, teacher and so much more. We only wish we could help every applicant. They are all so deserving. This year, we celebrate with Patrick Rupp, Hunter Dejarlas and Grishok Thayanithy. We are so proud of them and know that Nick would love each of them. Also, we would be remiss if we didn't mention the extremely generous donors that help make this possible. It's because of YOU that we are able to continue doing this, year after year. I hope you will read our recipient profiles and understand just how much it helps them. If you'd like to donate, please check out this GoFundMe link.
Again, thank you to everyone that helps make this happen and congratulations to our 2018 recipients!

We have decided on our winners for the 2017 Nick Saputo Memorial Scholarship! It was an incredibly tough decision. There was so much passion in every single application and it was an impossible task to choose. However, we are so proud of the decision we made. Should anyone care to join us, please feel free to come watch these amazing kids perform at MCGC State Finals on April 2, 2017 at Saginaw Valley State University. At the end, we will award the scholarship. Should you want more details on times, etc, please e-mail Elissa at email@example.com.
A huge thank you to everyone that has contributed to help us keep this scholarship going. We couldn't be more appreciative. You, truly, give us so much hope for the future of Nick's legacy.

Wow! What an exciting year for the Nick Saputo Memorial Scholarship. We are always so excited to hand out the scholarships and this year was no different. It's a tough and painstaking process to narrow down our applicants to just just three winners. EVERY applicant is extremely deserving and if we could, we'd help everyone. A big thanks to everyone who applied. Your passion and dedication did not go unnoticed. We are confident that Nick is so proud of each of you. Also, a thank you to those that wrote recommendation letters that made these students jump off the pages.
And of course, this couldn't be possible without our extremely generous donors. Large and small, every donation helps and 100% of it goes to help these students. Your kindness is incredible and helps us keep Nick's legacy alive. Since launching this scholarship in 2011, we have distributed more than $15,000 in scholarship funds to help students achieve their dreams in music. And like every other year, we are sure that we can raise money once again in anticipation of the 2016 scholarship winners. Here's to another great year ahead for the Nick Saputo Memorial Scholarship.

We hope that applicants for the Nick Saputo Memorial Scholarship will share his love of music and his passion for performance.
