P. DAN DIMILLO SCHOLORSHIP FUND
The mission of Leadership Niagara is to strengthen regional leadership. We recognize the need for financial assistance to participate in the Leadership Niagara program can not only help individuals but better our community as well. The P. Dan DiMillo Scholarship was created to see this opportunity to fruition.
Dan DiMillo was a vibrant, joyful family man. Dan never let an opportunity to lend a hand or to lead by example pass him by. He was an inspiration to others, treating everyone with fairness and respect. He was a family and community leader and his infectious enthusiasm, willingness to step up to challenges and gregarious sense of humor were loved and admired by all who knew him.
Sadly and suddenly Dan passed away in October 2015, leaving us grieving by his loss, but full of the memories of his drive and passion for life. Dan especially enjoyed the camaraderie he developed with his Leadership Niagara classmates and was passionate about the importance of developing leaders to foster the growth and future of the region. Dan’s leadership philosophy reflects both the broad spectrum of impact leadership can have, as well as the impact his experience in Leadership Niagara had on him.
The P. Dan DiMillo Leadership Niagara Scholarship will cover the full cost of tuition for one year in the Leadership Niagara program, and be awarded annually to one individual from Niagara County who shared Dan’s leadership values. The scholarship recipient will not only experience the program that was an important part of Dan's life, but have the opportunity to learn valuable leadership skills and principles that will foster their growth and the growth of family, community and businesses in our region. The opportunity to pass on that gift to a select individual will be one of Dan’s lasting legacies.
