Some of the STG awards are created to honor a person or organization. Established and funded by individuals, companies, civic groups and foundations, these awards, like all STG awards, benefit Staples High School graduates with demonstrated financial need.

HONOR

By providing tuition assistance to Staples High School seniors and graduates with demonstrated financial need, these awards help students close the gap between what their family can afford and the expected cost of tuition at the student’s chosen college or vocational school.

RESPECT

Some of these STG Named Awards have been awarded annually for over 50 years. They are the foundation of the Staples Tuition Grants and have helped a remarkable group of young adults go on to become productive contributors to Wesport’s community and beyond. These ‘Named’ Awards recognize beloved members of the Town of Westport.

Augustus G. Cardello Memorial Scholarship Award

“Gus” was a devoted son, brother and friend at Staples High School and at Providence College. His gift in this life was making others happy. He was a kind, old soul who had an incredible ability to make people laugh, to boost their confidence and to ensure that nobody took themselves too seriously. He was motivated by bringing joy to others. We hope his memorial scholarship will help others develop their passions, remember his kindness, and continue his legacy of love and laughter.
