East Meadow High School senior Kristen Kavanagh is on her way to pursuing a career in education. This talented student recently received two scholarships to fund her studies this fall at SUNY Plattsburgh as a childhood education major.

Kristen is the recipient of the New York State PTA Scholarship. This prestigious award totaling $3,000 is presented to just five winners from among applicants from each of Nassau County’s high schools. The purpose of the  scholarship is to assist outstanding students in their preparation for the teaching profession. 

Additionally, Kristen is the recipient of a Nassau Counselors’ Association Joseph Bruzzese High School Scholarship. The award recognizes seniors who have demonstrated a commitment to helping others in the school community and who have shown concern for others through leadership.

The district congratulates Kristen on this outstanding academic accomplishment.
