Greg Friscia Scholarship

Greg's life embodied his loyalty to his family, his school and his friends as well as his desire to be a meaningful part of those things.  Greg was an Eagle Scout, an honors student, and a multi-sport athlete. Greg knew seeking leadership is not the same as leading, and Greg, whether or not he was team captain or house president, always found ways to lead by his actions and positive approach to life.  Greg will forever be a member of the Xavier graduating Class of 2013.
