"We are extremely proud that the Fund has thrived through more than seven decades," said President Alice Tenney. "Even when economic times have been particularly tough, as they have been these past few years, our community has stepped up to provide for its high school graduates."
Students who have received Fund scholarships said they are meaningful in two ways: the extra money means they can work fewer hours or rely considerably less on loans. And the awards are an indication of how much the Mamaroneck Larchmont community cares about its students as they go off into the world.
