The Vincent James Mannarino Memorial Scholarship Fund was established by Jake and Vanessa (Mannarino) Harrison – Class of 1988, in memory of Vanessa’s father, Vince. Vince had a devout faith and passionately believed in educational excellence. He chose to send Vanessa to Steubenville Catholic Central High School because of those values and to prepare her for pharmacy school in college. A steel worker, whose wife Jean, was a homemaker, Vince made great sacrifices to provide a Catholic education for his daughter. Vince firmly believed in and was a proud supporter of Catholic education. The Harrison’s founded this scholarship in his memory to help make a Catholic education possible for someone who is also making sacrifices to attend CCHS.
