Dominic Garofalo was born in South Philadelphia in 1940. When he was 7, his father died, and he was living with his mom and two teenage sisters. Working and unable to care for a young son, his mother enrolled him in Girard College where he attended 1st through 12th grade. Upon graduation, he worked full time and attended Temple University where he received his BS in Chemistry. Dominic then began work for Rohm & Haas where he stayed until his untimely death at 49.

Dominic frequently spoke of his years at Girard with gratitude for the exceptional education he received, the life-long friends he made, and the values instilled in him that made him a kind, generous, and successful person. Girard College prepared him well for life; he became an exceptional man who was a gift to all who knew him. This scholarship was created to honor him, his school, and to assist students pursue their educational dreams.
