Smith. Each student received $500 scholarships towards their college education. The scholarship recipients were chosen based on meeting the qualifications that included two letters of recommendation (1 from a school administrator, 1 reflecting their community involvement), biography, proof of acceptance into an accredited college/university, and an official transcript reflecting 70% or above overall average. Last year the Senator gave two scholarships to high school seniors from Springfield Gardens High School.
|On Monday June 28, several local students received opportunities that are unfortunately scarce in our community. Samario Hardy, Taariq Gould, and Sasha Hutchinson (not pictured) received an all expense paid trip out of the city to attend the Department of Environmental Conservation Pack Forest Camp that was presented by Patricia Rubens, Chief of Staff to Senator Malcolm A. Smith. Gerald Romsky of Beechwood Development has sponsored the roundtrip transportation (Pictured, left). The camp will be in session for one week, July 4 through July 10, in Warrensburg, NY. Camp Forest includes fishing, archery, hiking, and many more activities geared to stimulate the camper’s interest in natural resources.|
