Bobette Bibo Gugliotta Memorial Scholarship for Creative Writing

This scholarship was created in 1995 to honor the late Bobette Bibo Gugliotta, author of several books, including "Katzimo: Mysterious Mesa," "Pigboat 39" and "Women of Mexico: The Consecrated and the Commoners, 1519-1900." In 1930, when she was 11 years old, Mrs. Gugliotta wrote a story about a mouse who later became Mickey! Mrs. Gugliotta married U.S. Navy Ensign Guy F. Gugliotta in 1940. They lived in several cities in the United States and Latin America before retiring to the Peninsula in 1962. Her family and friends remember her as a wife, mother, hostess and one who was "never bored, never tired, always curious."
