Bob Allen Scholarships

In 2000 the New York State Amateur Hockey Association named their scholarships after its long time President and Director Emeritus, Bob Allen. Each year at the Annual Meeting of the New York State Amateur Hockey Association, four scholarships are awarded to High School or Prep School Seniors going on to college. The $1000 scholarships are awarded based on the individuals participation at school, with their community, and involvement in youth sports.

This year, William Sergio from the Sachem Flaming Arrows was one of the four winners.
Will will be studying Naval Architecture and Design for a year at either Georgia Military College or Marion Military Institute and then on to the US Coast Guard Academy for 4 years.

Congratulations William.
