Rotary Club Awards

The Tarrytown Rotary Club honored Sleepy Hollow High School seniors who stand out among others and represent the ideal of the organization with scholarships for their accomplishments.

Each of the students received a certificate during the Academic Award presentations and on June 12,  they attended a special luncheon hosted by the Rotary Club at J.P. Doyles.

Rotary Club President Laura Murray-Faggella said this year there was an abundance of applications submitted for the competition. “These students shine above others. We are very proud of them and we look forward to hearing what they will do in the future.”

Congratulations to the following award recipients:

The Frederick M. Breitbarth Memorial Scholarship: Taylor Burnett, Julia Friedman, Anna Lazin and Maya Milstein. The following juniors will receive the scholarship next year: Devin Batheja, Sarah Lamb, Ella McGovern. The scholarship recognizes students for their scholarship, participation and service in school and community activities expressed by the Rotary’s mission of Service Above Self.
