Seniors 2022

2022 Jerry Robling Scholarship


Jerry Robling was a lifelong resident of Scranton, Pennsylvania, and spent most summers of his adult life at beautiful Lake Winola in Wyoming County. As a youth, Jerry rarely left his South Scranton neighborhood, having attended and graduated from St. Mary of the Assumption Grade and High Schools. That changed dramatically when Jerry joined the Army, and then spent the better part of five years with an anti-aircraft unit in places like North Africa, Italy, and at the end of the War, in Germany. After the War, he completed his college education, earning a degree in accounting from the University of Scranton. He then worked as an Internal Revenue Service auditor for over 30 years.

Jerry and his wife, Marian, who was a teacher for almost forty years, knew the value of getting an education. He also knew that getting a college education had become increasingly difficult as the costs of higher education grew wildly, outpacing the cost of living by a significant amount. Jerry wanted to help kids who grew up like he did to achieve a college education without incurring massive amounts of debt. Consequently, in his Will he established The Jerry Rohling Scholarship.

The Scholarship will be awarded to applicants who live in either Lackawanna or Wyoming County, regardless of where they attend school. The recipient’s award will be for their first year of school and will not be renewable. The scholarship fund is managed by the Trustees Jerry chose, and those individuals will also be responsible for selecting the scholarship recipients. The IRS Form 1023 which was filed with the Internal Revenue Service to create the Private Foundation which oversees the scholarship is available for review upon request.


To be considered for a scholarship, applicants must submit their application and all supporting material on or before June 20, 2022. The completed application should be submitted to the Trustees at the following address:

Jerry Rohling Scholarship Foundation c/o Thomas & Pinnacoli, PLC

345 Wyoming Avenue, Suite 200

Scranton, Pennsylvania 18503

Award Amount: $500.00

The importance of character in our lives and in our community. You may also include any personal examples of character.

History of the Andrew Mazza Foundation

The Andrew Mazza Foundation started in 2016, after the sudden loss of Andrew at the age of 23. Andrew was a passenger in a car that had flipped over and became mostly submerged in a creek in Gibson, Pa. When the second passenger was unable to exit the car, Andrew stayed with her and used his legs to keep her high enough so she could reach the air pocket. Thankfully, she lived and unfortunately, Andrew did not. Andrew’s character and courage saved her life. To honor Andrew, we created the Diesel Jam Truck Show in his name. This event now supports 20 scholarships to local high school students, who are entering a trade program as well as students already in Trade Schools. Andrew Mazza Foundation supports local communities through charitable donations and through our annual Truck or Treat Halloween event in Clifford Twp. To see more of what The Andrew Mazza Foundation does, you can go to www.andrewmazzafoundation.com or to our Facebook - The Andrew Mazza Foundation.
