Gregory Marzolf Jr. was a student at the University of St. Thomas from fall 1998 to fall 1999. A 1998 graduate of Cretin-Derham Hall, Marzolf overcame obstacles and made significant contributions to the St. Thomas community, most notably as a summer orientation leader and a mentor to all in the Commuter Center. Though he died in April 2000, his legacy of service remains.
UST has annually funded the Greg Marzolf Jr. Scholarship. The funds come from an endowment managed by Cretin-Derham Hall. The funds go to a student with a documented physical or learning disability.
On Saturday, Jan. 24, the Greg Marzolf Jr. Foundation will host the first Cause to Cook for a Cure: Ciao! In addition to an array of food and beverages, the event will feature raffles, including a Caribbean cruise package for two.
