George Sampson Scholarship
Funded by the estate of former Peekskill Rotary Club President and Paul Harris Fellow George Sampson, graduating seniors from Hendrick Hudson, Peekskill or Walter Panas High Schools are eligible for the award.
George Sampson ran a successful automobile repair shop in Peekskill for many years. The award was established to help young men or women who wish to pursue a career in a trade or craft. Funds provided can be used by recipients to further their specialized schooling or apprenticeship, or to purchase tools for a craft. Selection by a committee of Rotarians is based on focus and need.
Applications will be available each spring in the guidance department of the each school, or by contacting Rotarian Tony Olivieri at 914-739-5549.
