Dear Chamber Members and Community members,
Each year our Chamber of Commerce awards scholarships to graduating seniors of Brewster High School (BHS) and BOCES who will pursue post high school education. Over the past 20 years our Chamber has awarded approximately $50,000 in scholarships. This is accomplished through your generosity when you support the raffles at our monthly dinner and by your generous contributions on behalf of your business.
Each of these awards will recognize and invest in a student who demonstrates leadership, has participated in a significant degree of community and volunteer service, and plans to continue their education at an accredited institution. Recipients of the Chamber’s scholarship are active in their community, well rounded, are role models for their peers, and are in need of financial support.
One of our prior recipients thanked us for their scholarship by saying, “Thank you so much for the honor of being awarded a scholarship it means so much to me. It will go to toward purchasing my books….I have worked very hard and happy that it shows. I hope to take what I have learned here to one day make the community a better place.”
These students are destined to be tomorrow’s business leaders. This is the Chamber’s effort to support their endeavors.
In addition to our regular scholarships, we have created “The Geoffrey R. Reinwald Memorial Scholarship” to honor the memory of our past President and longtime member. Contributions of any amount can help to fund this award. The recipient of this award will be a student who possesses qualities like our dear friend and leader Geoffrey.
Please contact Rose at the Chamber office if you would like to contribute toward this year’s awards. Your name and/or your business will be acknowledged, as well as publicized in the local and Chamber news when the scholarships are distributed at the Awards ceremonies. Thank you in advance.
