Mr. Cass Panciocco, '82

Cass G. Panciocco established this scholarship as a tributre to the life and legacy of his father, Gaspare G. Panciocco. Gaspare “Cass” G. Panciocco was a World War II combat veteran in the medical corps and a career Boston Fire Fighter. He was a hero to many throughout his life, saving many lives both as a medic and a firefighter. He had five children who thought he was bigger than life and who have decided to establish this scholarship to assist his firefighting brothers and sisters with the educational expenses of their children. Mr. Panciocco enjoyed his trips to UMass Amherst when he visited his son and friends and seemed to enjoy the campus and the college lifestyle, which he never had a chance to experience.

Please address thank you notes to:
Mr. & Mrs. Panciocco
