This year there was a different process for awarding the Akin Hall Scholarships. Please see the letter below from Betsy Brockway, Scholarship Chair, and Elizabeth Allen, Board President, for more information on this year’s process, the recipients, and how to contribute to the Scholarship Endowment Fund.
In keeping with their 39-year tradition, the Trustees of the Akin Hall Association Scholarship Endowment Fund fulfilled their mission by honoring the following top ten percent of the students in the recent 2018 Pawling graduating senior class with a total of $55,000 in awards.
In 2016, I was one of the recipients of the Akin Hall Association’s scholarship award. Students participating in the program write an essay of about 500 words, fill out a form that lists community involvement and extracurricular activities, then interview with the Board members.
