Dr. Carabasi and his wife came to Temple to pursue a medical career at Scott & White Hospital.  They made their home in Temple and established this scholarship in honor of Dr. Carabasi’s parents who made every effort to provide the young Robert with elite educational opportunities.  From the beginning, Robert was an eager learner, and his mother in particular continued to push for his academic success, ensuring he attended the best schools to fuel his curiosity.  Dr. Carabasi’s wife, Lujuana was raised in a similarly education oriented home and ended up teaching at Temple College.
