When you think CRHS baseball and great influential coaches then many peoples mind think of one man, Coach Joseph Buccheri!

Last evening Coach Buccheri’s wife Marie Buccheri and her children, along with many of the CRHS community gathered to dedicate the new memorial plaque to this great man.   Among those special people that gathered, were lifelong friends, former teaching and coaching colleague and Citrus County residences, Jim Manos and Richard Tangeman.

This great coach and teacher who’s coaching was not simply on the baseball diamond, but with the lives of young people every day has had a foundation setup in his honor.

Joseph Buccheri Foundation

The mission of this foundation is to carry on the life work of Joseph Buccheri in assisting young adults with their development and education. Our new foundation will begin to provide scholarship assistance to local Citrus County students in 2013. Our goal is to start small and provide three partial scholarships to Citrus County student athletes and to three non-athletes. We will look to grow in the number of partial scholarships provided each year and move to add full scholarship opportunities in the near future.

Joseph Buccheri had a true love and passion for helping people find their path in life and through this program we hope to help Citrus County students find their path through education where it may not be possible for them without it. Easing the stress on a young adult and their family through financial assistance can be a powerful contributor to their decisions for furthering their education and devoting themselves to improving their lives.

As a 501(c)3, non-profit foundation, donations are tax deductible. Every little bit helps and we look forward to building this foundation and improving the lives of our local youths.
