Rossi, Marion "Madeo" Athletic Scholarship
The Marion "Madeo" Rossi Athletic Scholarship was established in 1998 through memorial contributions from family and friends who wish to remember a man who touched many lives in the Akron community. Madeo, a 1956 College of Education graduate, was an outstanding quarterback and kicker for the Zips in 1953 and 1954 and set many college records. He was inducted into the Varsity "A" Association Hall of Fame in 1986. This scholarship provides tuition aid for a University of Akron athlete with preference given to graduates of Garfield High School, where Madeo was a standout three-sport athlete. Madeo taught health for 31 years and coached wrestling, baseball, basketball, football, and was also the athletic director at Garfield.
