Malden Catholic granted Lisbeth Monteagudo ’25, David Beauvoir ’26 and Jordan Demetrio ’27, three students from Everett, the second annual Antonio Rossi Memorial Scholarship. The scholarships are each valued at $9,400 (cumulatively over $28,000) and named for the father of Attorney Anthony Rossi, a graduate of MC’s Class of 1990 and Everett native.
Antonio Rossi was born in Naples, Italy in 1946 and immigrated to Massachusetts at the age of 20 where he met his wife, Gina (Leo). Mr. and Mrs. Rossi moved to Everett shortly after they married and raised two children. Mr. Rossi worked full time as a metal machinist and sent his two sons, Anthony ’90 and Terigi ’87, to St. Anthony’s School in Everett and then to Malden Catholic.
Mr. Anthony Rossi, an Everett native who started as an attorney in Everett almost 25 years ago, launched the inaugural scholarships in 2022 and commented, “My dad believed in Catholic education and worked hard every day to support our family and provide us with an outstanding education from both St. Anthony’s and MC. From my father, we learned how to focus, apply ourselves every day to our studies and the importance of giving back to the community. I hope my father’s legacy lives on through these scholarships and provides a new generation of hard-working Everett families the opportunity for a great education and a strong foundation for the future. My family’s goal is to continue to grow the Antonio Rossi Scholars program to four Everett students at MC each year, giving a life-changing opportunity to great students from Everett.”
Lisbeth Monteagudo ’25 graduated from St. Anthony’s in Everett and is a high-honors sophomore at MC with a 90 average or above in all classes during her first two years at Malden Catholic. David Beauvoir ’26 is an honor roll student at MC and Jordan Demetrio ’27 is a high-honors student from St. Anthony’s in Everett and will be a freshman at Malden Catholic in September.
Sean Hurley, Malden Catholic CFO, added, “We cannot thank Mr. and Mrs. Rossi enough for their commitment to Malden Catholic and inspirational decision to assist families in Everett. Mr. Rossi has been an incredible benefactor of our school and we thank him for using his success to help hard-working families from his hometown. Lisbeth and David have been great students at MC, and we know that Jordan, Lisbeth and David will benefit from the exceptional programming and academic rigor of MC.”
