The Christina L. Vaccaro Memorial Scholarship is an award given by the friends and family of Christina Vaccaro, a student at the William L. Spadoni College of Education at Coastal Carolina University. Christina's dream was to become a middle school math and science teacher, a dream she was unable to fulfill, as she passed away unexpectedly in October of 2008. Education was Christina's passion, and she was as committed to teaching as she was learning. An extremely dedicated student, Christina worked hard to ensure she would be able to offer her students the best education possible. In addition to being a great student, Christina was also a great person; her kindness and good nature were infinite. Though a native New Yorker, Christina fell in love with South Carolina. Over the course of the five years she lived in the area, Christina grew attached. She planned to earn her degree in education and teach locally, giving back to the place that had become her new home.
This award was created to celebrate Christina's life and her aspirations, as well as to honor a Coastal Carolina University student who possesses the same qualities and spirit that Christina embodied and who will carry out her dream of teaching.
