Scholarship Essay Competition winners revealed

When Annie Paone and Paige Pangburn were in elementary and middle grades, they were schoolmates  in the Wynantskill district’s Gardner-Dickinson school. When they entered high school, they went in two different directions. Now, in a sense, they’re together again.

The two high school seniors — Annie at Tamarac and Paige at Troy — today were announced as recipients of a pair of $500 scholarships in the “2nd annual Southern Rensselaer County Rotary Club Scholarship Essay Competition.”

Their essays, which had to be based on their interpretation of the “Rotary 4-Way Test,” are available below.

This fall, Annie will enroll at SUNY Oneonta to major in music industry studies, while Paige will enroll at Siena College with an undeclared major.
