Cal Poly Scholarship

A Message from Pam Logan-Calabrese and the Damkar family–Madeline (Frank’s sister), John (Frank’s brother-in-law), Andrea, Francesca, and Savin:

We have established a pair of scholarships at Cal Poly to honor our husband, brother and uncle, Frank J. Calabrese. Frank graduated from Cal Poly and devoted thirty years to the community of Cal Poly, working in various capacities, including instructor in Industrial Technology and technical specialist in fire and alarm security systems. He truly loved Cal Poly.

Tax deductible gifts in any amount, and as often as you wish, may be made to honor and celebrate Frank’s life. Here is a list of donors.

One scholarship is to help those graduate students who apply for a Master’s Degree in Fire and Security Alarm Protection. This is a new program at Cal Poly that is being established in the Extended Education Department, and it is one in which Frank had hoped to be able to instruct after he retired. Please donate to the Frank Calabrese Memorial Fire Protection Scholarship.

The second type of scholarship is for students of the IT Department. Together, both scholarships have set a goal of raising $10,000 by 2012. Cal Poly Foundation has provided an online method to accept donations to the Frank Calabrese Memorial IT Scholarship.

Your two options for making online donations are the Frank Calabrese Memorial IT Scholarship and the Frank Calabrese Memorial Fire Protection Scholarship.

Please make an online donation now to remember Frank. Thank you.
