Camille P. Toomey Scholarship Foundation

ToomeyCamille Prezioso Toomey passed away Sept. 5, 2003. Born in New York City, she was a graduate of St. John’s University in New York. Camille held management positions at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, The Navy Exchange, TRW, Burndy, Xerox and IDC. She made time to serve as the president of the Rolling Hills Country Club Women’s Golf Club.

While earning her college degree, Camille worked full time. She understood the value of effort, desire and commitment. As she relocated with her husband a half-dozen times, Camille sacrificed her personal goals for her family. However, she was still able to find management positions in each new community.

Camille believed that helping an individual person helped our society as a whole. She felt that every young person who received assistance would help another later in life. She believed strongly in the American dream and looked for ways to pass that dream on to others. She treated all people as her friends, and looked for ways to help everyone.

The Camille P. Toomey Scholarship Foundation provides financial assistance to students of any age who need money, encouragement and support.

Of particular interest are students who return to school after suspending their college studies because of circumstances beyond their control. In addition, students who embrace Camille’s ideology of helping others, and provide assistance when such opportunities present themselves, greatly honor her memory.
