(Those going into High School)
Hi, my name is Morgan Schaefer and I am a senior graduating from Mepham High School. In this upcoming fall, I will be attending Texas Christian University, where I will be studying Spanish and Business. I feel so grateful to be a recipient of the Jill Maurer-Campbell Memorial Scholarship, and want to extend a huge thank you to the Steuben Association for this incredible opportunity. As someone who takes pride in being an active member of their community, I am a Gold Award Girl Scout, President of Student Government, Chief Editor of the Fragments Literary Magazine Program, and Varsity Lacrosse and Soccer player. In my free time I love to sing, play the ukulele and guitar, spend time with family and friends, and also am a Town of Hempstead Lifeguard during the summer. I am excited to be enrolled at TCU in the Honors College and as a Chancellor's Scholar, where I will have the ability to grow and seek adventures in this new educational environment. Personally, the idea of legacy and honor is important to me, and upon receiving this scholarship I hope to leave a positive mark on all future endeavors embodying the legacy of Jill Maurer-Campbell and the Steuben Association. I would like to once again thank the Steuben Association for presenting me with this great opportunity!

Thank you for selecting me as the recipient of the 9-11 Memorial Scholarship. It is greatly appreciated by myself and my family. The Scholarship money will go towards helping me further my education.
I will be attending Nassau Community College in the Fall. Also, thanks to my Dad for sponsoring me for my future endeavors. Much Thanks to the FDNY Steuben Association for having awards like this for me and others like me.
Hello, my name is William Roesch and I am a graduating senior from South Side High School in Rockville Centre. In September, I will be attending Fordham University where I plan to study Biology with a Pre-Vet track. I hope to attend veterinary school in the future after college.
I would like to thank the FDNY Steuben Association for selecting me to receive the Gerard S. Carmosin Memorial Scholarship. I have enjoyed my high school career as a high honor roll student every quarter, a member of the National Honor Society, a member of the Varsity tennis team and President of the Irish Club.
From a young age I’ve always been fascinated by animals. I’ve had the benefit of having a dog during my childhood and was always entranced by wildlife and animal documentaries. I spend a lot of my free time as a volunteer at the North Shore Animal League since last year.
I’ve always had a strong desire to help others. I’m lucky to have parents who have had careers being in service of others with my mother as a doctor and my father a retired FDNY Lieutenant. Their influence has inspired me to combine my interest in animals and my desire to help others by becoming a Veterinarian. I understand that I can help others by helping their pets because I’ve seen how much animals mean to their owners and how much joy they bring to them. I am eager to start my path at Fordham and with the help of many people, including the Steuben association, I will be able to accomplish my goals. Thank you again for this generous award and opportunity.
Hi, I am Christopher Scharfenberger, my father is a lieutenant in Bn-26. I am senior graduating from Connetquot High School in Bohemia. I will be attending the University at Buffalo this fall majoring in mechanical engineering. I am honored to have received the Albert K. Schaffner Memorial Scholarship. I have been very successful in my high school career by being in the high honors roll or the principals’s honor roll every year and for being in honors science classes. I am on the Connetquot High School Boys Varsity Track and Field team. I am a 3 time league champion for track and field and I have been a part of my 3 time county champion team as well. I am a Boy Scout who is currently Life Scout but is perusing Eagle Scout which I plan on achieving in the next few weeks. In my free time I enjoy spending time with friends or family.

Hello, my name is Grace Schwinn, and I am greatly honored to be receiving the 2023 Steuben Association Scholarship from the FDNY Steuben Association. I have recently graduated from Bishop Kenny High School, and I will be attending Flagler College in Saint Augustine in the fall where I will be majoring in Cinematic Arts & Graphic Design. I transferred from Burke Catholic in New York to Florida in the middle of my sophomore year. It was a challenge to enter a new school and not knowing anyone, but that did not slow me down. I joined the Sailing Team, threw myself into my AP Art Class, and pursued Theater as an upperclassman. I have been awarded academic achievement in English and placed third in the 2023 Diocese Art Show in the painting category. Representing Bishop Kenny in the 2023 Northeast Florida Regional Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, my multiple submissions were recognized with 2 Golden Keys, 1 Silver Key for Art Portfolio, and an Honorable Mention award. I would like to thank my Dad for sponsoring me. He was a responder to the 9-11 World Trade Center attacks, so this scholarship has a special place in our hearts. I am again sincerely grateful to the Steuben Association for providing me with this distinguished award.
