The Ray Festa Melanoma Scholarship is awarded in memory of Ray Festa, a lifelong resident of Montclair and 1957 Montclair High School graduate. Ray was an outstanding athlete and community leader throughout his short life of 53 years. As a youngster, Ray was a good student, Student Council Officer, young entrepreneur and active in community service. As an adult, he chose a career that kept him in Montclair everyday as the owner of Ray’s Luncheonette, a beloved spot for many MHS students. In recognition of Ray’s keen interest and support of MHS as well as his extreme devotion to the people of Montclair, this four-year scholarship is awarded to a college-bound senior who emulates the spirit of participation, entrepreneurism and community service exemplified by Ray Festa.
The Ray Festa Melanoma Foundation is celebrating it's 20th year of awarding this scholarship and to date the monies granted is in excess of $150,000. The 2013 grant will be in the amount of $2,500
