About the Fund

After Clint’s passing in May 2012, his parents, David and Christine Lacinak, established a scholarship fund with the Community Foundation of North Central Florida. The fund honors Clint by awarding three rising sixth-grade students at St. Patrick’s Interparish Catholic School scholarships of $1,000 each to apply towards their tuition. If the recipient maintains their academic performance, conduct and leadership, they can renew their scholarships throughout their time at St. Patrick’s. The inaugural scholarships were awarded in May of 2013. 100% of all donations go to the scholarship fund.
