The Billy Garceau Memorial Scholarship Fund
This is a $2,500 award in honor and memory of Billy Garceau, who was born and raised in Biltmore Shores. Billy attended Birch Lane, Berner JHS and graduated from MHS in 2008, with wonderful memories, great experiences and a group of friends whose loyalty and love for each other, and for Billy, has kept them very close to the Garceau Family.

Always athletic by nature, Billy played a variety of sports throughout his school years. He played on the Football team both Jr. Varsity and Varsity. Pursuing a career in Health Care, Billy became an Emergency Medical Technician at North Shore LIJ while attending College. Always smiling, as he shared his sense of humor with everyone, displaying genuine kindness and always eager to help others. Billy showed great strength and courage when faced with a disease that has been stigmatized by society, but is now getting the attention and understanding that it so desperately needed. Each year the committe chooses the student who most closely emulates Billy’s skills and his life. Our Sincere Congratulations to all the winners of this generous and heartfelt award!
