$96,000 of landfill scholarships encouraging environmental science
SENECA FALLS - Seneca Meadows awarded eight $1500 awards to two graduating seniors from each of the four school districts in Seneca County this past June – Mynderse Academy, Romulus Central School, South Seneca Central School, and Waterloo Central School.  The recipients were selected by the respective school awards committees, and the committees chose outstanding students who have chosen to further their education in environmental conservation, environmental science or other related fields of study.  Academic achievement, citizenship, and extracurricular activities were considered in making the selections. 

This is the 11th year of the annual scholarship making it a total of $96,000 that Seneca Meadows has awarded to students in Seneca County.  Seneca Meadows plans to continue the scholarship in 2015 as their ongoing initiatives of giving back and encouraging environmental stewardship.
