Steven Rigazio scholarship winner is Streator student

Oglesby, Ill. -- The first winner of the Steven W. Rigazio Scholarship is Illinois Valley Community College freshman Cassie DeGuido of Streator.
     The IVCC Foundation started the scholarship in honor of a 1974 graduate who went on to become president of the Nevada Power Company. Rigazio died of Lou Gehrig’s disease in 2001 at age 47.
     His parents started a foundation in Nevada to raise money and awareness about the disease. They also started the $3,500 scholarship that DeGuido can renew in her sophomore year.
     She hopes to go into elementary education.
