Elizabeth Martelli Scholarship Fund
In a tragic car accident on March 22, 2008, 24-year-old Elizabeth Martelli passed away. An accomplished actress and writer in the prime of her life, Martelli was also a graduate from Reading High School and was attending Kutztown University. She was published in the Reading Eagle while writing for its Voices section in high school, and continued her own private writing of poetry and prose throughout her life. Her parents, Nick and Ruth Martelli, started this scholarship fund to honor her life and help her memory live on. The scholarships are awarded to Reading High School seniors who also have a talent and passion for writing.
