“I am extremely honored to receive this award from Invest in Others. It’s exciting and gratifying to be part of a group that devotes its entire mission to helping people in need, whoever and wherever they might be.” -Eric Candelori, EMP180° Owner
ROCKVILLE, Md. (PRWEB) October 10, 2019
Business leader and former U.S. Marine Eric Candelori was recognized by Invest in Others with the nonprofit organization’s 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award for dedicating more than four decades of leadership and service to the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation. Invest in Others presented the award during its annual gala held September 26, 2019, at the Westin Boston Waterfront in Boston, Massachusetts.
Candelori said his service to the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation is a way to honor the legacy of his late father, who was a Colonel in the Marine Corps Reserves. The Foundation provides scholarships for the children of Marines and Navy Corpsmen in-need to recognize their parents for their service. Established in 1962 in the spirit of Semper Fidelis — always faithful — the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation is the only military scholarship provider to make an award to every single eligible student who applies.
Candelori, who is currently the Foundation’s vice chairman, has also served in the roles of fundraiser, treasurer and acting president. He has helped grow the Foundation from a small, informal organization awarding a few scholarships a year to a vibrant fund that provides 2,500+ scholarships collectively worth more than $8 million annually.
“I am extremely honored to receive this award from Invest in Others,” said Candelori. “One of the best things about this recognition is the $55,000 that comes with it — every dollar of which is going to the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation. It’s exciting and gratifying to be part of a group like Invest in Others that devotes its entire mission to helping people in need, whoever and wherever they might be.”
