SAINT PAULINE VISINTAINER SCHOLAR
The Saint Pauline Visintainer Scholar for 2014 is Bryce Fiamoncini, son of James and Justine Fiamoncini of Mount Carmel. Bryce is currently a senior at Mount Carmel Area and plans to attend Bloomsburg University and enroll in its’ nursing program and eventually becoming a nurse anesthetist. Bryce currently ranks second in his class of 112 students and maintains a 102.6984 average. Bryce has enrolled in a rigorous but rewarding academic path including Advanced Placement Courses, Honors Courses and Luzerne County Community College Courses. Fiamoncini has been chosen annually since his freshman year to be a speaker at the Veteran’s Day Program and has represented MCA in The Scholastic Scrimmage and the Lock Haven University Math Competition.
Bryce was also chosen the treasurer of the senior class and has received multiple perfect attendance awards. He was selected as the Junior High Pride Award winner, the Elks Junior Teen of the Month, the Elks Teenager of the Month, the Rotary Student of the Month, and most proudly, the Elks Teenager of the Year. He has also been a member of the Junior High National Honor Society and the National Honor Society and was chosen as MCA’s representative to the National Youth Leadership Program in his junior year.
Most of his community service stems around his church, Sts Peter and Paul Ukrainian Catholic Church and their sister parish Assumption of the Blesses Virgin Mary. He is a weekly lector and altar server and volunteers at all of the church fundraisers. He also serves every Lenten service during the week and teaches religion classes on a weekly basis to the youth of the parish.
Athletically, Bryce has been a member of the golf team at Our Lady of Lourdes Regional through the cooperative program with MCA. He has qualified for the District Tournament in each of the last two years, placing 13th and 10th respectively and missed moving on to the state meet by four places. It was a very unique and rewarding experience as a senior as he was the only golfer on the team. Since he didn’t have to worry about winning, he and coach William Chesney worked to become the best golfer that he could be. He posted a low score of 74 and maintains a 12 handicap. Bryce also participated in baseball and basketball earlier in his career and is currently a basketball referee and baseball umpire for youth sports in the Mount Carmel Area. He is also the statistician for the very successful Mount Carmel Area girls basketball team.
Fiamoncini’s character and work ethic make him a perfect choice for the St Pauline Visitainer Award, as does his spiritual character.
