2016 Scholarship Winner:
Congratulations to Jason Wheeler, graduate of Lansingburgh High School, and recipient of the Veterans of Lansingburgh 2016 Scholarship Award. Jason represented our club, as this year’s scholarship winner as he took part in our Memorial Day parade. He rode through the parade with our other dignitaries and enjoyed the parade from the reviewing stand before receiving a check in the amount of $1,000 at the Memorial Day Awards Ceremony immediately following the parade. Jason is also a 3 sport athlete, and a member of the U.S. Naval Sea Cadets. He plans to attend Sienna College in the fall where he will major in Political Science / Pre-Law. Best of luck to you Jason!

We look forward to providing this scholarship again next year to a senior from Catholic Central High School, Lansingburgh High School, LaSalle Institute or Troy High School. Our scholarship is based on “volunteering”, so remind the students to volunteer!  

Our application will be available again in the fall.  ​
