The Pine Point Community Council is pleased to announce that it will be awarding a $250 Yolly Nahorniak College Scholarship. The scholarships will be awarded to college-bound high school seniors who are Pine Point residents. This will be the fifth year that the Pine Point Community Council has awarded a scholarship to a deserving student.
The PPCC decided that the scholarship should be dedicated in memory of Yolanda “Yolly” Nahorniak, who founded the Pine Point Community Council in her basement over 35 years ago. Throughout the years, Yolly was instrumental in dealing with quality of life issues, advocating for her beloved seniors and was considered the voice for Pine Point. Yolly passed away in 2009.
Scholarship applications are available at the Pine Point Community Council office located at 335 Berkshire Avenue in Springfield or online at www.pinepointcouncil.com. Donations for the Yolly Nahorniak College Scholarship can be sent to 335 Berkshire Avenue, Springfield, MA 01109. The deadline is May 31, 2013.
