Campus Alumnus/Eastern Time Fund Rizzo Scholarship
Campus Alumnus, Chuck Rizzo, president and CEO of Eastern Time, Inc., along with his sons Marc and Bryan, and wife, Gail, have funded an endowed scholarship in memory of Chuck’s parents, James and Margaret Rizzo. Preference for the scholarship will be given to graduates of Dunmore High School who are pursuing a degree in engineering.
“Chuck is a perfect example of what hard work and ambition can accomplish. He is an entrepreneur extraordinaire, and has shared these skills with his sons who have become successful businessmen in their own right,” said Director of Development Maria Russoniello.
Eastern Time, Inc. is well known in the Allentown area, where their primary business is located, for their philanthropy to many causes. Cuck and his family recognize the importance of private support in helping those in need.
Chuck’s Dad, Jim Rizzo, was an employee of the campus in the maintenance department for several years. By establishing this scholarship, Chuck, an native of Dunmore, has combined this special tribute to his parents with his fondness for his hometown and personal background in electrical engineering. He and his son, Bryan, recently spoke to our campus’ Entrepreneurship and Business classes.
