Barbara Scibetta valued learning in her life, and in the lives of others. She was concerned about the high cost of post high school education. Her family and the good people of St Ann’s Episcopal Church in Woodstock, Illinois, have established the St. Ann’s Episcopal Church Barbara Scibetta Scholarship fund. This fund is intended to help students like her who may not be part of the academic elite but are motivated to pursue an education that will help them enrich their lives and become self-sufficient members of society. Barbara’s father, Norman Scibetta, was an Elgin educator who knew that a university education was not for everyone. He was instrumental in organizing the cooperative education program in Elgin High School District U-46. This scholarship was awarded to students who had demonstrated motivation to improve their lives through education, be it community college or trade school.
