Scholarship recognition a family affair for Russo brothers
Robert V. Russo started participating in the annual Honors Night scholarship in Johnson High School’s auditorium nearly 10 years ago.
The accomplished, Providence-based attorney who also serves on the Johnson Town Council as president, started this tradition that helps high school seniors pursue college degrees.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, Russo, school officials and others presenting college scholarships were unable to attend this program.
“I have always been so grateful for the experience I had at Johnston High School and the educational opportunities I had at Bryant College and the University of Baltimore Law School,” Russo said the other afternoon. “I wanted to give back to students that are motivated to fertilize their minds.”
