Send a link to a friend
[October 28, 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 people’s lives.
