Joseph Molinari, a West Babylon High School senior, was one of 20 students presented with a $1,000 scholarship on Monday during a special ceremony at the Hauppauge headquarters of Island Federal Credit Union.
Island FCU awarded a total of $20,000 in scholarships to high school seniors looking to continue their education. The scholarship program is open to any Long Island senior who is or becomes a member and has been accepted into a program of full-time undergraduate study as a freshman. Membership in Island FCU is open to anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Nassau or Suffolk counties, with the exception of the townships of East Hampton, Southampton and Shelter Island.
“We at Island Federal Credit Union take great pleasure in helping our young members continue their education and pursue their personal goals in life,” said Bret W. Sears, President/CEO of Island Federal Credit Union.
“Island realizes how important it is for our young people to get a good start on their futures, especially in these trying times, and this program helps make that possible.”
