Scholarship Recognition

Senior Mary Kate Steinbrecher was one of nine seniors from across Long Island to be presented with a distinguished Western Suffolk Counselors’ Association Scholarship at a ceremony held on May 25 at the Wilson Technological Center in Dix Hills.

Mary Kate, who was selected from a field of more than 40 applicants, was chosen based on the impact she has made on her school and community through her volunteer efforts. She is the president of the high school’s Best Buddies program, which brings special education and general education students together, and volunteers within the district’s special education program.

Mary Kate will be attending St. Joseph’s College in the fall to study Spanish and special education.
