Quarello organized a youth scholarship to honor Quarello’s
commitment and service to area communities and youth in those
Quarello, 55, passed away unexpectedly on June 28,
2010 leaving a void within the law enforcement community. Quarello
committed over forty years of service to serving the public as a
police officer, 9-1-1 dispatcher, EMT, D.A.R.E. officer, and advisor
for the Law Enforcement Explorer Program.
Since the scholarship’s inception, over $13,000 has been granted to
area students to assist them with their advancement in education in
criminal justice or related fields.
The scholarship fund received generous support from the communities
where Bob Quarello made his greatest impact in people’s lives. The
committee works tirelessly to continue a legacy that Quarello
created – helping youth in the communities he served, and furthering
support for criminal justice.
