Sheila and Michael Ricci
Michael and Sheila Ricci have endowed a scholarship fund for highly-qualified, needy students with an entrepreneurial emphasis. Student applicants can be in the undergraduate or graduate programs. The scholarships are set up to help as many students as possible with the potential of covering up to full tuition.
Michael Ricci graduated from LMU in 1959 with a degree in accounting. He spent a number of years working at one of the top public accounting firms. He founded his own firm, Marco Manufacturing in the 1970s, finding a wonderful niche in the OEM fireplace market. Eventually, he grew that firm to the point where he was the largest manufacturer/supplier of fireplace products to the new housing construction industry in America.
