Major Robert Marchanti Endowed Scholarship A Project of Athletics

Honor His Dedication and Sacrifice

Maj. Robert J. Marchanti joined the Army in 1984, then later used that same discipline and sense of duty to become a successful wrestler for Towson University. He graduated from TU in 1989 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Education, then taught for more than 17 years in Baltimore County Schools. Maj. Marchanti deployed to Afghanistan in 2012 with the Maryland National Guard and was killed in action while working with the Afghan National Police. His loss had a major impact on his family, friends and many students he worked with over the years. This scholarship honors and memorializes his life and provides assistance to a deserving student-athlete who shares the same sense of duty and discipline displayed by Maj. Marchanti.
