The Goddard School Presents 2nd Annual Bob Marchetti & Gerard Kick Memorial Scholarship to Troy Ramos
The Goddard School of Orange is honored to present the 2023 Bob Marchetti & Gerard Kick Memorial Scholarship to Troy Ramos. Now in its 2nd year, this $5,000 scholarship is granted annually to a Goddard School of Orange pre-k graduate who demonstrates a hard work ethic and perseverance.
“The life lessons I learned at The Goddard School helped prepare me throughout my entire academic career,” said Ramos. “I am thrilled and so thankful to receive this scholarship as I continue my educational journey.”
The scholarship honors Bob Marchetti, the original owner of The Goddard School of Orange and father of co-owner Kim Kick, who had a vision for creating a school that his family would be proud of for generations. It also honors Gerard Kick, father of co-owner Chris Kick, who devoted his life to his family and his community, and spent much of his time helping various charitable causes benefiting children in need.
“Both of our fathers exemplified their commitment to their careers, their families and their communities, and we are so honored to give back to our students in their name,” said Kim Kick. “Out of all of the applications we’ve received, Troy’s positivity and dedication to being an outstanding student truly stood out, and we are honored to name him this year’s recipient of the Bob Marchetti & Gerard Kick Memorial Scholarship.”
Ramos will begin his studies at The University of Connecticut this fall pursuing a degree in computer science. Six of his siblings have also graduated from The Goddard School of Orange’s pre-k program, while his youngest sibling just recently started at the school.
