CLARK, NJ - The Clark UNICO Chapter celebrated the 39th annual Brian Piccolo Awards Dinner at the Gran Centurions on Friday, May 9. Clark honorees were graduating seniors Michele Pozyc, Caitlin Caliguire and Vincent Fischetti. The student athletes, all of Italian-American heritage, were chosen by their coaches for excellence in their sport.

The Piccolo Award was named for professional football player Brain Piccolo, whose short life epitomized excellence in athletics, integrity, and leadership.  Piccolo’s life was the subject of the 1971 made-for-television movie, Brian’s Song. The awards were presented by UNICO District Governor Courtney Villani and Clark Chapter President Ralph Bernardo.
