Carm Urzetta Scholarship Fund

In 2013, Mr. Urzetta created a scholarship fund to help students with financial need. Since then, he has raised more than $153,000 from alumni and friends like you. These gifts have provided financial aid to a variety of students. Many of them would not have been able to graduate had it not been for that additional support.

Mr. Urzetta makes sure these students are working hard and keeping their grades where they need to be.

We are so pleased to announce that Carm Urzetta, will be recognized for his dedication to students and developing athletes as he is inducted into the Walk of Fame at Frontier Field on Sunday, August 12, 2018. The ceremonies will take place preceding the 1:05 pm Red Wings baseball game. This is an incredible honor for a man who is beloved by thousands of alumni. We hope you will join us at the Red Wings game to celebrate. To purchase tickets in the Carm Urzetta section on Sunday, August 12, please click the link below:
