Eddie Fonseca Memorial Scholarship (Zeta Beta Epsilon)
“Here’s to our Fraternity”
Zeta Beta Epsilon started in the early 70’s and quickly became a positive, motivating force on campus. Our hope is to promote this legacy, (“May it live forever”), and its ideals for all those present and future students. (“May we always faithful be”) Steadfast to those principles of openness and inclusiveness, instilling diversity and exuding school spirit. Ensuring the belief that we are all part of something special, expressed through sports, academics, societies, etc. (“And our bonds ne’er sever”) and connected in fairness and friendships that transcend a lifetime.
(“Though our troubles may be high boys”)
Eddie, a student athlete and member of ZBE, embraced these ideals. Unfortunately, Eddie’s life ended way too soon. We hope everyone will remember him, his character and what he stood up for in life. (“With our standards raised on high boys”) May Eddie’s flame burn bright and continue to inspire us.
(“We will be loyal to our ZBE, ever faithful to our Zeta Beta Epsilon”)
In furthering these guiding principles, Mr. Rebuth and Mr. Rosenthal, along with the Brothers of Zeta Beta Epsilon, have established a scholarship promoting these character qualities.
