It was a big night for two lucky (read that, hard working) students from Northwestern Regional High School #7 on Thursday, June 25th, 2015, at Ski Sundown. They each walked away with a $5,000 scholarship raised by the local New Hartford Businesses and the community at large, that attended our Valentine's Day Wine Tasting and our Comedy Night.
Jakrin Lanphouthacoul and Casey Stotler proved that hard work really does pay off.
The theme of the evening was EMERGING LEADERS OF NEW HARTFORD and not only do our two sholarship winners reflect that image but so do all of our interns. Kelly Walsh of New Hartford explained how the internship program has helped her prepare for college.
State Senator, Kevin Witkos was introduced by NHBC President, Paul Amenta and gave a great speech to the fort or so attendees. His own experiences start a restaurant in Collinsville spoke to many in the audience about hard work and perseverence.
High School Principal, Ken Chichester spoke and said the school couldn't be more proud of its student body.
