NARI-BIE Robert T. Palladino Memorial Scholarship

The BIE/Robert T. Palladino Memorial Scholarship was founded in 1994 to perpetuate the ideals of an inspiring individual.

Robert T. Palladino was an exemplary businessman, superior trade specialist, and dedicated community servant. At the time of his passing, he was the head of his family’s roofing business, vice president of the BIE, and a contributing force in many organizations and community projects. He was self-governing, quick-witted, and engaging. Dignified, yet spunky to the core.

This scholarship is offered by the BIE in memory of Robert T. Palladino and others like him who shine in craftsmanship, citizenship, and friendship. This annually awarded scholarship grants $1,000 toward the advanced education of a graduating senior who exhibits the potential to succeed in a building trades career with a focus in community involvement.
