The Richard J. and Marilyn J. Michelini Scholarship Endowment Fund was created to provide scholarships to students who reside within the incorporated area of the Village of Montgomery.
Richard Michelini (1931-2003) graduated from Colorado State University. He served in the United States Army and was regional sales manager for Ciba-Geigy for thirty-three years.
Marilyn Michelini served as the president of the Village of Montgomery. Previously, she served on the Kane County Board and the Village of Montgomery Board of Trustees.
Mrs. Michelini was a member of the DuKane Valley Council, Kendall County Mayors and Managers Association, Metro West Council of Governments, and Fox Valley United Way.
The Michelini’s have five children: Thomas ’72, Marie Lynn ’73, Mark ’77, Lisa ’80, Tina ’90.
Mrs. Michelini created this scholarship fund in 2005 as a celebration of the wonderful education the Michelini children received in Aurora. One of the proudest accomplishments of Richard and Marilyn was that they were fortunate enough to send five children to college. The entire family is very pleased to add one scholar to the list of family and friends that our parents, and now the children, have helped along that journey. The fund became an endowment in 2008.
