Big I Tri-County received more than one hundred, very impressive applications for our two high school scholarship awards this year.

The Joel S. Pollack Memorial Scholarship went to Manpreet Kaur of Francis Lewis High School in Fresh Meadows for her well written and thought-provoking essay on ‘legalizing recreational marijuana in New York State’.

Nicole Aponte, winner of the Stephen T Dooley Community Service Scholarship award submitted a solid list of volunteer activities during her 4 years at Kellenberg Memorial High School in Uniondale, for which she should be very proud.

Each winner will receive $1,000 towards their college education and our heartiest congratulations!
