Scholarship Winners @ the library! Congratulations!

The winner of the 3rd Annual Leo Clement Scholarship is Lydia Sharp. Lydia’s essay was chosen from the five entries received. The essays were all very well done and the decision was not easy to make. Lydia just graduated from Averill Park High School and will be attending the Rochester Institute of Technology.

The Leo B. Clement Memorial Scholarship is funded by a generous gift from Alma Clement in memory of her late husband. Mrs. Clement established this fund specifically for scholarship purposes to a high school senior who loves reading.
