Paul Sciullo II was a City of Pittsburgh Police Officer and Psychology graduate of the McAnulty College of Liberal Arts. On April 4, 2009 he and two other police officers were senselessly killed responding to a distress call in Stanton Heights, a neighborhood of Pittsburgh.
Each year, the McAnulty College of Liberal Arts awards the Paul Sciullo II Award for Community Service. The Award recognizes and celebrates community service performed by graduating seniors in diverse fields, including (but not limited to) service to disadvantaged, disabled or developmentally delayed children; creating after-school programs for teens; fostering literacy among uneducated adults; addressing environmental degradation; enhancing public comfort and safety; crisis center work; refugee and migrant worker support efforts, and distributing food and/or clothing to the poor and the elderly.
Two Duquesne, McAnulty students were selected because of how they exemplify the memory of Paul through their work. This year’s recipients are:
Stephanie Mullen and Brianne Depcrymski.
Paul Sciullo, continuing to touch lives. Even from a far.
