Marocchi Memorial Scholarship
Rear Admiral John Marocchi served in the United States Navy for decades, with a career that spanned service in World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Admiral Marocchi was a recipient of the Purple Heart and the Legion of Merit, was one of very few Navy officers to complete Army Airborne training, and served for over fifteen years as a member of the Board of Trustees of the Virginia War Memorial. He was a person who used every opportunity to teach those around him, and all were able to benefit from his experience and perceptive view of the world around him. In his memory, a scholarship has been created to encourage and enable motivated individuals who plan to enroll in the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) at a Virginia school of higher education.
The RADM John Marocchi Memorial Scholarship provides two awards of $2,500 each given to two graduating seniors from Virginia high schools. Please see below for more details!
