A new scholarship has been formed in the name of Steven John Esposito, a Levittown resident who passed away in April at the age of 26.

Esposito (1985-2012) lived all his life in Levittown, graduating from Division HS in 2003. As a child, he enjoyed playing sports, especially baseball, football and basketball, and along with his older brother Michael, Steven participated in the St. Bernard’s CYO Basketball Program.

The Steven John Esposito Memorial Scholarship was started by the Ruggiero family of Levittown in Steven's memory and will award a scholarship to one boy, in either the 3rd, 4th or 5th grade, which will allow him to attend the St. Bernard Summer Basketball Camp for one week during the summer of 2013.
