NEW AWARDS FOR 2013
Santo J. Barbarino, Beta Sigma ’65 (1946 – 2012)
Alpha Phi Delta suffered a tremendous loss with the passing of Brother Santo a few short weeks after attending the 2012 convention. Prominent in the announcement of his passing was that he served as National President from 1978 to 1980. In addition, he had served as District Governor and editor of the Kleos. But his tenure as a trustee of the Alpha Phi Delta Scholarship Foundation is really quite significant as he served from its founding in 1974 until his death in 2012. In the near 100 year history of our fraternity no one has, nor likely will, serve our brotherhood in an official capacity for 38 years!
Throughout those years, Brother Santo taught chemistry and was chairman of the science department at three schools before being principal of Lynbrook High School for 20 years and finally serving as Superintendent of Schools for the Lynbrook School District. No one with such strong educational credentials has served as a scholarship trustee. For his extraordinarily long tenure as a trustee, his great experience in the field of education, and above all, his uncompromising devotion to Alpha Phi Delta, which he shared with us all, the trustees of the Scholarship Foundation have created a special financial award in honor of our brother, Santo J. Barbarino, to be presented annually to that undergraduate brother who has successfully overcome significant challenges to his academic career. This award is in addition to any other awards received.
