WARWICK — The Warwick Valley Teachers Association has awarded $10,000 in scholarships to a select group of Warwick Valley High School seniors.

The seniors were presented their scholarships at the annual Warwick Valley High School Awards Night on June 3.

The recipients were selected through a highly competitive application process.

Gianna Rotundo, Gabrielle Trimlett, Daniel Kelly and Allyson Yates each were awarded $1,000 scholarships.

The WVTA awarded three Teacher Memorial Awards for $2,000 each. These awards were created in honor of three inspiring teachers who passed away during their teaching careers in the Warwick Valley School District:

Joseph Ginley, won the Alexander Smith Memorial Award.

Kathryn Fernandez won the Heidi Villegas Memorial Award.

Angela Volpe won the Sandy Scheinbaum Memorial Award.

Each scholarship recipient has proven to be a well-rounded young adult, who earns high marks in academic classes, participates in sports, arts, music, extracurricular clubs and activities, volunteers, and has worked to become a valued member in our school district and community.
