Every year, Quincy High School Seniors are honored with an Award’s Night. This year, things look a little different. And we want to take a moment to share the story of the Richard and Geraldine Storella Educational Trust Scholarship managed by Trustee-Attorney Anthony S. Falco of Falco & Associates, P.C. This is a scholarship fund that was established by Richard Storella as part of an estate plan that he implemented with Attorney Anthony S. Falco at Falco & Associates, P.C. Richard’s ultimate goal was to establish an educational scholarship fund that would be awarded to hard-working students with connections to Italian culture or of Italian descent.

Mr. Storella wanted this scholarship to honor his wife Geraldine (Gerry) and this trust will do so for many years to come. Geraldine (Gerry) Storella was born in Quincy and attended Quincy high (class of 1955). She was the Captain of the Cheerleading squad and years later, became the first female member of the Quincy High School Hall of Fame Quincy High School in 1955 as the class Valedictorian. She attended Boston University College of Business Administration where she also became a cheerleader for the Terriers.

Richard and Geraldine were married for 53 years. Together they were involved in the Quincy community throughout their lives. Richard coached Quincy Youth Hockey and Gerry joined right alongside him as the Secretary for the Board of Quincy Youth Hockey. They were both members of the Granite Links Golf Club and Gerry was a board member of the Thomas Crane Friends of the Library and participated in many of the events that the Library sponsored. Gerry also believed in, and followed the wonderful History of Quincy, and as such, became an active member of the Quincy Historical Society.

According to her family, Gerry lived by 2 principles:

“Savor the Day”. Take each day as a gift and do not waste it on the insignificant things that this world throws at you. Each day, strive to increase your knowledge by learning at least one new item, no matter what it may happen tobe.

“Do Good and Forget”. If there is one thing in life that teaches me how to live – it is this principle. If you do good, if you look for the good in every individual and understand that everyone has some faults and only focus on the good that comes from others, you will find that not only do you feel better about those around you, but that you feel better about yourself.

Gerry wanted the opportunity to pass on to others what she learned from her Quincy education, her Quincy neighbors, and her Quincy upbringing. Through this Scholarship, she has made her dream come true.

This year things look a little different for the scholarship committee and the award recipients. Normally, the committee would meet at Alba to review the candidates and enjoy a meal in honor of Richard and Gerry. This year, it was all done electronically like so many other things. The awards were not issued during the Quincy High School awards night where proud parents, grandparents and guardians can enjoy and clap alongside these hardworking and well-deserving students. Instead, the awards were mailed. And for that reason, we would like to take a moment to publicly honor the two recipients.

There were so many great applicants this year. Ultimately the committee decided on two winners:Amanda Morris (who received $10,000.00) and Caitlin Amichetti (who received $5,000.00) Amanda will be attending Wesleyan University and plans to major inEnvironmental Science and Theater. Caitlin plans to attend Quincy College and will study Nursing.

We wish both of these incredible women success as they begin a new (and unprecedented) chapter in their education. May they continue to enrich their communities as they have done throughout their high school careers.

This is the third of ten scholarship award years. The scholarship is managed by a Scholarship Committee and by Attorney Anthony S. Falco, as Trustee of Falco & Associates, P.C. The scholarship committee is comprised of Anthony S. Falco, Esq. Trustee; Larry Taglieri, Principal of Quincy High School; Leo Kafka, owner of Alba Restaurant and Dr. Brian Jolley and Denise Martucci, lifelong friends of Mr. & Mrs. Storella.

Falco and Associates Cares:

Salute to Seniors

Falco & Associates P.C. Director of Operations, Scott Campbell was part of a group who helped organize the “2020 Salute to Seniors” weekend in Quincy. As a way to give the high school seniors a proper “send off”, Scott along with the dedicated team of volunteers gave all spring sports teams from both sides of the city a chance to play their final game against their crosstown rivals. These students were given one more at bat, one more time taking the mound, one more volley, one more run up the field representing their school. The long weekend of games ended with a parade honoring the graduates. Thanks to Scott and all the volunteers generosity, seniors (and their parents!) at both QHS and NQHS ended their high school careers with smiles on their face.
