Mark Fracasso was a sophomore at Bishop Ireton when he died in a tragic accident in 2008. After his death, his parents, Mark and Michele Fracasso, setup a scholarship fund in his name. Every year, a deserving student from the Wind Ensemble is awarded a scholarship. This scholarship is merit based and the award recipient is chosen by the Wind Ensemble Conductor.
Mark was dedicated to music as a trumpet player when he was accepted into the prestigious Wind Ensemble as a sophomore. Each year, on Mark's birthday (September 24th) the school has a dress-out day and all funds raised go to support the Mark Fracasso Scholarship Fund. The Wind Ensemble plays during drop off in his honor.
Fracasso Family Scholarship
Mark and Michele are the parents of three Bishop Ireton graduates, Alexandra '08, Matt '13, and Anna '16. After their youngest child graduated, the Fracasso's set up an additional scholarship fund called the Fracasso Family Scholarship. This scholarship fund is a need-based scholarship and it's awarded annually to a deserving Bishop Ireton student or students. It helps defray the cost of tuition and makes a Catholic education possible.
