During its June 12 Board of Directors meeting, the West Islip Breast Cancer Coalition proudly presented five scholarships to graduating West Islip High School seniors.
President Margaret Campise, along with fellow board members, presented checks for $500 to each recipient, including sisters, Jessica and Kate Ball, who plan to attend Monmouth University and East Stroudsburg University, respectively.
Also among the scholarship winners were seniors Jake Ulrich, who will attend Union College, Robert Read, who will attend the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and Holly Mascolo, whose choices include Colgate University and Loyola University, but is undecided at this time.
The scholarship winners were selected based on their achievements, both in and out of school, in addition to, their well written and heartfelt essays, which concentrated on the impact that breast and/or gynecological cancers had them and their families. The West Islip Breast Cancer Coalition is proud of their scholarship winners and wishes them a successful freshman year in the fall.
