ELIZABETH – Eliazabeth’s Promise 2006, Inc. will host their second annual scholarship awards program on Friday, May 9, at Galloping Hill Inn of Union. This year, a new scholarship has been created to pay tribute to a local hero, Cpl. Luigi Marciante, Jr., who died while serving in Iraq last year.
Marciante, a graduate of Elizabeth High School, left behind his loving wife Stephanie and their eight-month old baby boy, Louie. The Peterstown native, who loved being a father, is remembered for his bravery, his selflessness and ability to brighten any room he entered.
