It is with great pride that we learned that young Mr. Borovich has been named for a second year as the recipient of the Karlo-Bizic Scholarship.
From what we understand, Blaise is very deserving of this honor for embellishing all the traits sought in the scholarship, giving back already to the Serbian Community with his Time, Treasures and Talents.
This year's SNF winner for the Karlo-Bizic scholarship was Milena Raketich, who is a Research Assistant at the Conversation Lab at Vanderbilt Univeristy, in Valparaiso, Indiana, studying Human and Organizational Development and Political Science..

Obituary from the Sewickley HERALD
Gustav "Gus" Bizic, 65, passed away peracefully after suffering from multiple illnesses, in Sewickley Valley Hospital.
Born in Ambridge, PA, he was the son of Dorothy (Klaich) Bizic and the late Peter Bizic, Sr.
He was a retired OVT (occupational/vocational/technical) teacher for the Pittsburgh Public School District, teaching at Conroy Junior High School and Greenway Middle School.
Previously, he taught metal and wood shop for Center Area High School and welding in the evenings to adult classes. He was a superb craftsman, learning the art of woodworking from his father and his Uncle Joseph Bizic, of Bizic Brothers Cabinet Shop in Ambridge.
Mr. Bizic served in the military, retiring after 23 years of service in the Air National Guard, and as Chief Petty Officer (CPO) of the U.S. Navy Reserve.
He was a member of the St. Elijah Serbian Orthodox Church in Aliquippa, Masonic Lodge 701 of Ambridge, the Valley of Pittsburgh Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, the American Serbian Eastern Rite Brothers (ASERBS), the Sewickley Senior Men's Club, American Federation of Teachers, Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers and Retired Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers, and the Sewickley Sunshine Stroke Club.
Gus Bizic was also a former member of the Leet Township Planning Commission, was Vice President of the Little Sewickley Creek Watershed Association, served on the Quaker Valley Council of Governments, and was a member of the Sewickley Valley Historical Society, as well as a member of the SewickleyNET Board of Directors.
Surviving in addition to his mother, are his beloved wife, Milana "Mim" (Karlo) Bizic; a devoted son, Nicholas Bizic of Ben Avon; a sister, Anne B. McClure; a brother, Peter Bizic Jr.; sisters-in-law Danica Bizc, Dr. Rose K. Gantner and Alexandra K. Nolan; three nephews, Peter Bizic III, Mark Gustav Bizic and David McClure; and three nieces, Mary McClure, Elaine McClure Arazawa and Angela B. Nolan.
A service was conducted at the St. Elijah Serbian Church in Aliquippa with the V.Rev. Fr. Stevan Stepanov officiating.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Serbian Relief Fund, c/o 1617 Davidson St., Aliquippa, PA 15001.
Arrangements were handled by the Wayne N. Tatalovich Funeral Home of Aliquippa.
It should be noted that in addition to flowers, many donations to St. Elijah Seribian Orthodox Church and St. Elijah Choir were VERY generously given; however, more than $4,500 was sent to the orphans in Banja Luka in +Gus Bizic's name. We thank our dear friends, neighbors, everyone who gave so willingly to help the less fortunate. It was sincerely appreciated by our family.
In regards to the Orphans:
"The test of our Progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little."
