Suzanne Pancrazi was a film editor and producer. Throughout her career she skillfully used this art form to tell stories full of care and humor. She was always generous in sharing her time and expertise with anyone she could help, in her professional life and in the Leonia community.
The Suzanne Pancrazi Memorial Scholarship recognizes a student who exemplifies these same qualities: creative talent, a focused pursuit of excellence, and generosity to others.
