The Skylar F.C. Pascale Memorial Scholarship Fund was established by the friends and family of its namesake. The scholarship will be awarded to one Valley Central graduate each year. The awardee will have overcome a unique obstacle, adversity, or challenge in their life, be regarded among their peers and teachers as kind, inclusive, and respectful, and will have demonstrated a commitment to athletics.
