Student is Awarded Scholarship from NYS School Business Officials


Fredenberg Award Lauren Abeles is congratulated by Roslyn High School Principal Kevin Scanlon, Assistant Superintendent for Business Joseph C. Dragone, and Guidance Counselor William Caruso upon winning the Philip B. Fredenberg Memoral Award for Outstanding Service.

Roslyn High School senior Lauren Abeles was chosen to receive the Philip B. Fredenburg Memorial Award for Outstanding Service, which includes a $1,000 scholarship. Lauren has been very involved working with students with disabilities and has volunteered a lot of her time with the Shooting Stars (Basketball) and Challenger League (Baseball). She also works at the JCC for youth education with students with disabilities.

The $1,000 scholarship was part of the prize awarded to Joseph C. Dragone, Assistant Superintendent for Business, when he received the Philip B. Fredenburg Memorial Award for Outstanding Service at the annual conference of the New York State Association of School Business Officials (NYSASBO) on June 7, 2010 in recognition of "his long and meritorious service to children, NYSASBO and the educational community."

Mr. Dragone’s total award of $1,500 was divided into two portions; a $500 cash prize that Mr. Dragone donated to a private fund that provides assistance to disadvantaged Roslyn children, enabling them to participate in school-sponsored programs, and a $1,000 scholarship which was given to Lauren for her outstanding service to the community.
