On a recent afternoon at Divino Ristorante in Belmont, CA, Paula Uccelli, our 2006 Western Foundation Humanitarian Award Honoree, presented the $2500 Pete & Paula Uccelli Foundation Scholarship to Ryan Consani of Redwood City, who was unable to attend the Scholarship Awards Presentation at our June Convention in Reno. Also present was our State President Arlene M. Nunziati and yours truly. Ryan graduated from Carlmont High School in Belmont with a GPA of 4.18. He continues to be active as a swim instructor and coach, and is a member of DECA, an organization of business professionals that assist emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges.
Ryan will be attending Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, studying Business Administration with a concentration in Financial Management. His parents are Kevin Consani, DDS, and Shawna Lovering Consani, M.D., and his nonno is Alessandro Consani. His Italian roots come from his grandparents who immigrated to this country from Lucca, Italy. Congratulations, Ryan! We wish you a very bright and successful future!
