The East End Seaport Museum is pleased to announce that two of Greenport’s High School students are the recipients of our 2016 Lifeguard Scholarship Award!
Madison Hilton (sophomore) and Nicholas Wallace (senior) were selected to receive the scholarships, which cover all training expenses for Lifeguard / CPR certification.
Given the applicants we were presented with, it was a tough choice. All applicants had to complete a standard application, as well as a personal essay.
There will be a public presentation during the EESM’s grand opening May 27th, 2016.
Thanks to GUFSD for helping to circulate the initial scholarship information. We had a great response from Greenport and are happy the recipients seem so well-suited for this opportunity. This is our first year offering this scholarship, and we hope to make it an annual award.
