Hello, my name is Abigail Daretany. I just graduated from the Michael J. Petrides School on Staten Island, where I was a member of the National Junior Honor Society as well as a member of The Junior Ambassador’s program. I am also a Cadet Girl Scout in Troop 5031. I have been playing the violin since the 1st grade and I am a former member of the New York Borough Wide Youth Orchestra. I am also a member of the Mighty Stringed Demons, which is a youth group of musicians that perform at local libraries and nursing homes. I am grateful that I have been chosen as one of the recipients of the FDNY Steuben Association’s 2020 8th grade grant. Danke!
"Hi, my name is Janna Weltner. First, I would like to thank the FDNY Steuben Society for this generous award. I just recently graduated 8th grade at Oakdale Bohemia Middle School and will be going to Connetquot High School in Bohemia this fall. I was a defender on my school soccer team this year when we had an undefeated season. And although the season was canceled, I made the high school varsity lacrosse team. Academically, I am on the school’s High Honor Roll and I received the President’s Education Award for Outstanding Academic Achievement. Thank you so much to the FDNY Steuben Association for this award! And thank you to my father Steven Weltner for sponsoring me and for everything he has done while being a proud member of the FDNY!"
Hello, my name is Stephen Chojnacki, and I would like to thank the FDNY Steuben Association for this generous scholarship grant. It is an honor to receive it. I am 13 years old, and I just finished my 8thgrade year at St. Raymond Elementary School. This fall, I will be attending Chaminade High School in Mineola, NY. I have been very active during my school years. I was in my school’s Chess club and Junior Sodality. Outside of school, I play CYO basketball and am a member of Boy Scout Troop 332. I have been playing the violin for my school orchestra since 3rdgrade. The past three years I was selected to play violin in the Greater New York String Day. I also love to volunteer. This past year I volunteered in the Religious Education program in my parish. I am an altar server and I also enjoy being a part of the East Rockaway Junior Fire Department! I would once again like to thank you for this award, it is much appreciated.
Sincerely, Stephen Chojnacki
