Bob Quarello Scholarship Awards to
Send a link to a friend
[October 31, 2019]
In July, 2010 friends, family and colleagues
of former police officer Robert “Bob” Quarello organized a youth
scholarship to honor Quarello’s commitment and service to area
communities and youth in those communities.
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, $20,000 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
The committee works tirelessly to continue a legacy
that Quarello created – helping youth in the communities he served,
and furthering support for criminal justice.
