23rd Annual Ralph B. Canterbury Scholarship
In 2022, we selected ten outstanding students to receive $1,500 scholarships. The scholarship recipients represent a diverse group of outstanding student leaders. "While we know these students' high school or collegiate careers may not be what they envisioned due to the effects of the pandemic, they continued to excel," said Ron Celaschi, Clearview President/CEO. "We are pleased to have the chance to acknowledge all of the hard work and accomplishments of this year's winners." Read the Ralph B. Canterbury Scholarship press release

Looking to apply?
The scholarships are named in honor of Ralph B. Canterbury, former Clearview President and CEO, for his service and loyalty during his 34-year tenure. Since its inception, the Ralph B. Canterbury scholarship has provided over $230,000 to students across Pennsylvania. Recipients are chosen based on their personal goals, activities and community involvement, outstanding academic performance, and a video. Applications for this scholarship are accepted annually beginning in January.
15th Annual Joseph C. Cirelli Community Service Award
Our 2022 Joseph C. Cirelli Community Service Award winner, Harold Hicks, is not only a dedicated volunteer – he and his late wife Patti founded The Miracle League of Western Pennsylvania. Harold considers all the players in the league his family, and he works tirelessly to ensure opportunities for them to succeed. Over 500 special needs individuals, both adults and children were able to experience team sports during the 2021-2022 season thanks to his efforts. He is easy to spot at all Miracle League activities; in addition to announcing all the players at games, Harold also spends time teaching participants good citizenship and sportsmanship skills.
