Diane Silipigni Memorial Scholarship Created
May 31, 2012
A memorial scholarship has been created to honor the memory of a former Coastal Carolina University student who was killed tragically in 1987 in a jogging accident.
The Diane Silipigni Memorial Scholarship is available to CCU students through an endowed scholarship established by Meril and Richard Silipigni of Brigantine, NJ, in memory of their daughter. June 10 is the 25th anniversary of her death.
"Coastal meant a great deal to Diane," said Richard Silipigni. "She enjoyed being there and during those years blossomed into a mature young lady. The University did a lot for her and helped us through a tough time as parents. We will always remember the many contributions to our daughter and family that Coastal willingly extended including the dedication of the pear tree and memorial plaque. We are pleased that this scholarship will assist another Coastal student in Diane's memory."
Students are invited to apply for the scholarship, and preference will be given to those with at least a 3.0 GPA. Recipients may re-apply for continuation each academic year.
