2018 Reception to be Thursday, May 24th

 

Senior High students in the Cooperstown Central School and graduating in June 2018 are invited to apply for the Cooperstown Leadership Scholarship offered by Cooperstown resident Rich McCaffery. Deadline for applications is April 16, 2018 and applications are available by contacting the Cooperstown High School Guidance Office. The scholarship is for $500.00.

This eighth annual scholarship, founded by Rich McCaffery, is offered to students enrolling in a formal course of study at an accredited institution with a curriculum that advances the vital community role of Volunteerism, Community Development/Organizational Leadership, Hospitality/Tourism or closely related course of study either with a private enterprise, not-for-profit organization or government entity.  The course of study must begin with the semester following graduation, often referred to as the Fall semester.

Please note that while past and present community service is vital and recognized, this scholarship is focused on a student’s course of study after high school.

The recipient will be recognized at the Scholarship Reception on May 24, 4:30 – 6 pm, hosted by The Otesaga Resort Hotel.

The community is invited to attend.
