Stamford Board of REALTORS Awards Young Community Leaders With College Scholarships
The Stamford, Connecticut Board of REALTORS® was proud to have recently honored eight promising high school seniors with Community Service Scholarships at their downtown association headquarters.
John Pellegrino, Stamford Board of REALTORS® President explains the scholarship requirements, “Every year the Stamford Board of Realtors offers 8 $1,000 scholarships. Students must attend a Stamford public, private or parochial school, demonstrate leadership ability and been of service to their school and community. This year we had approximately 30 applicants, the committee certainly had a difficult time due to the high level of community service that each of the applicants achieved.”
