On Thursday night the 2018 Scholarship recipients were announced at East Hampton High School’s award ceremony. The year’s winners are Rudolph DeSanti, of East Hampton, and Maya Schultz, of Amagansett.
Ms. Schultz has volunteered with Paddler’s for Humanity; an East Hampton based all volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to bettering children’s lives. Maya hopes to train this summer to do the Block Island Challenge herself before she heads to college. She will be attending Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia majoring in International Business.
Mr. DeSanti has participated in many community service projects for several school organizations, as well as on his own. The project he is most proud of, was helping the EHMS PTA re-do the interior courtyard at the East Hampton Middle School. He had just graduated from the middle school the prior year, and this was his way of giving back and ensuring younger students had the possibility to have as many great memories and positive experiences there as he did. He will be attending Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island.
The scholarship for each recipient includes a $1,000.00 check to help with college expenses. Best of luck and congratulations!
