The Clara & Dom Presutti Scholarship

The Dom & Clara Presutti Scholarship is a $1065.00 scholarship. Dom & Clara worked a total of 32 years in the Bellaire School District. Clara was a school nurse/health teacher and Dom was an elementary/middle school teacher. They are both BHS graduates and all four of their children graduated from BHS. In 2012, the Presutti children established this scholarship in honor of their parent's 65th wedding anniversary, which is reflected in the amount of this scholarship.
