honor of receiving such a generous scholarship. I recently graduated from Patchogue-Medford High School in Medford, NY.

"My name is Kristen Hartung and I would like to thank all of you for selecting me for the Steuben Grand Council of Civil Service Scholarship Award.
I have recently graduated from Plainedge High School and The Gerald Clapp Technical School where I received my certificate in Cosmetology. Currently I am working as a counselor at the Town of Oyster Bay youth camps for the summer and will be attending Nassau Community College in the fall. With the receipt of this award, the Grand Council Scholarship will greatly assist me in reaching my goals in becoming a Registered Nurse. I will be attending Molloy College Graduate School after receiving an Associate's Degree from Nassau Community. I would also like to thank my mom, Denise for all of her support and to my stepdad, Capt. John Leimeister for submitting my name for consideration in the Steuben Scholarship Program. I am very grateful and proud to have been accepted into the Steuben Association Family and I am very humbled by your generosity. Once again I would like to express my sincere thanks in granting me this award.
(you are very welcome, Kristen)
"I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Steuben Association for awarding me the 12th grade scholarship. My father has been a member of the Steuben Association for 25 years. I am a recent graduate of Kellenberg Memorial High School and I will be attending Molloy College in the fall as a nursing major. This year as a member of the Kellenberg Volleyball Team I was honored to receive the N.S.C.H.A.A player of the year award. The volleyball team won back to back league championships in 2015 and 2016 and won the State Championship title in 2015. I was selected by Newsday as a member of the Long Island First Team for volleyball in 2016. I will be playing volleyball for Molloy College in the fall. During my time at Kellenberg I was ordained as a Eucharistic Minister and volunteered my time at a local nursing home. I also enjoyed teaching religious education classes to elementary students. Last summer along with my Kellenberg classmates I went on a Pilgrimage to World Youth Day in Poland. Being part of a global gathering for peace gave me the inspiration to major in nursing. Just like the proud members of the FDNY I look forward to a career of service to others. Again, thank you for honoring me with this award, it is very much appreciated. "
(and we appreciate your gracious Thank You)
"I would like to thank the Steuben Association for choosing me for the 12th Grade Scholarship.
I just graduated from Archbishop Molloy High School where I was on the bowling team for three years. I will be attending Queensborough Community College in the fall where I will be studying for a Liberal Arts Degree with an accent on forensics.
My family has a long history with the FDNY and the Steubens,
beginning with my grandfather and ending with my Dad who spent 23 years at Engine 33.
In closing I want to Thank the Steuben Association for granting me this award. It means so much to my family and I."

"I sincerely appreciate being selected as this year's recipient of the Gerard S. Carmosin Memorial Scholarship presented by the FDNY Steuben Association. I recently graduated from New Hyde Park Memorial High School and will be continuing my education at SUNY Geneseo as a Biology / Pre-Med major. During my high school years I was honored as a member of the National Honor Society, Tri-M Music Honor Society, Scholar Athlete, NYSCAME Leadership Award, and the Gold Academic Achievement Award. I participated in various extracurricular activities such as a National and Competitive Regional dancer and singer with Broadway Bound Dance Center, President of Chamber Singers and High School Chorus, New Hyde Park Memorial Varsity Soccer, Romanettes Kickline, and volunteered as a physical therapy assistant, religion teacher, musical theater teacher, and tutor for students that struggled academically. I am very grateful and honored to receive such a meaningful and generous scholarship remembering Past President Gerard S. Carmosin. As a result of this award, I also learned that my grandfather was actually a charter member. He was extremely proud to learn that the Steuben Association supported me in the future."
