Christopher Daniel Mello Memorial Award will be announced Friday

This year’s Christopher Daniel Mello Memorial Award winners will be announced at a small, socially-distanced, invitation-only ceremony.

The Mello family presents two scholarships annually in memory of Christopher Daniel Mello, who was flying for business aboard American Flight 11 on the morning of September 11, 2001. Terrorists hijacked his plane and flew it into the World Trade Center.

Coaches from two high schools connected with the Mello family each choose an athlete who emulates Chris’s character and values, reports MyRye.com. Winners receive a $5,000 scholarship.
