Mrs. Gamboni established the scholarship fund in her late husband’s name. Mr. Gamboni was born in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn and graduated at the top of his class from Baruch College. Following graduation, he was offered a scholarship to attend New York University School of Law. He was an ROTC member in college and deferred service to complete his law degree. After graduating from NYU, he was hired by Cahill Gordon & Reindel, LLP, but soon took a leave to report for active duty. Mr. Gamboni served from 1966 to 1969 at the Pentagon in the military affairs division of the Judge Advocate General's Corps of the United States Army. There he rose to the rank of captain while earning his LLM in taxation from Georgetown University. Mr. Gamboni returned to New York to resume his position with Cahill in 1969, became partner in 1974, and retired as senior counsel in 2016. Nearly a year later, in April of 2017, Mr. Gamboni passed.
