Joseph was only 19 when he tragically lost his life. To honor my son's memory and pay tribute to his legacy, I want to present the high school he graduated from with an education scholarship. Joseph was so smart and destined to do great things. Joey grew up most of his life in Lebanon, CT. He was a good student and loved school. Despite years of bullying Joseph persevered and graduated from Three Rivers Middle College Magnet School with honors. He was accepted and heading to Florida Institute of Technology to pursue further education in Mechanical Engineering. Tragically Joseph's life was cut short. His favorite pastime was a dangerous one; motorcycle riding. On July 17, 2019 Joseph was in a fatal accident. Besides leaving his mother at only 19 years old, he left behind a sister he loved and so many friends. Joseph was predeceased by his father only 13 months earlier.
Education was important to Joseph. He pushed himself to get awesome grades and even a perfect score of 800 on his Math SAT testing. Teachers and fellow students were often in awe at his abilities in math and science. During his memorial service the college math professor who taught Differentials told me how he used to help her work out mathematical problems.
This scholarship will allow Joseph's memory to live on in one of the places he enjoyed the most, school. After looking into starting a scholarship I found that to have a sustainable scholarship fund which can then be maintained for an indefinite amount of time, the scholarship must be funded in any amount surpassing $30,000. I am hoping and praying this wish of mine, to pay tribute to Joseph and honor his legacy, will come true with help from all the people who loved him and who love education as much as he did.
The Joseph Teo Bialczak Education Scholarship will be a yearly scholarship of $1000 awarded to one male student and one female student who excels in mathematics as determined by the faculty at Three RIvers Middle College Magnet School.
Please help honor his legacy. If you can please share this fundraiser with your friends and family I would greatly appreciate it. I hope to reach this goal to support upcoming learners.
A list of donors can be provided to the school. Please leave your name if you would like to be recognized on this list.
Any amount will help make my wish come true.
Joseph's mother Christine
