Rita Matteo

 
   

In January of 1988, the co-president of the Brentmoor Parent Teacher Organization, Rita Matteo, died after a lengthy battle with cancer. She had been an officer and active participant of the PTO for six years, during which time she encouraged all students to engage in fun, worthwhile, community-oriented activities. Among her accomplishments was the bringing together of students, parents, and staff members to help fundraise.  As a result, this allowed them to purchase materials, software, and other items that the school needed.

In the spring of 1988, the Brentmoor PTO established the Rita Matteo Memorial Scholarship to recognize students who reflect the character and spirit of Rita Matteo in their dedication to community service. In 2008, the Matteo Family assumed sponsorship of the scholarship and established the Rita Matteo Memorial Scholarship Board.  To date, over 75 recipients have benefited from this scholarship.
