The DiMascio Family Endowment Scholarship
Alfred and Henrietta DiMascio were born and raised in New York City. They were married in 1946 and moved to California in 1947 so that Alfred could attend Northrop Institute of Technology where he earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Aeronautical Engineering. In 1952 Alfred went to work for Lockheed Aircraft Corporation, located in Burbank, and was there for the next 34 years! The same year, they purchased their first house, a brand new one, in Mission Hills. They lived there until 1964 when the building of the 118 freeway forced them to move to their second new home in Porter Ranch.
They had three daughters whom they encouraged to pursue higher education. They each graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree from CSUN, and have had good lives because of their wonderful parents’ love and support and the excellent education and training they received at CSUN.
This scholarship honors Alfred and Henrietta DiMascio’s memory. It is a fitting tribute because of their love for travel and commitment to higher education. They would be very pleased to know that they are helping future generations of CSUN students learn through their travels abroad, and that their studies will open new horizons for them and lead to degrees of higher learning.
