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.
This senior should be entering a trade school, apprenticeship, college, or other learning program for this skill. The amount and number of awards is the decision of the Rotary Club of Peekskill, NY.
Rotary must receive applications by May 21, 2021. The awards will be presented at a Rotary Lunch Meeting in June.
Applications are available each spring in the guidance department.
