The Nebrasky Foundation, which annually awards funds for education, training and assistance for Hudson Valley students who may not fit the traditional four-year college model, has awarded $1,000 scholarships to Michael Babcock and Logan Cossack of Sullivan County, New York.
The Nebrasky Foundation was launched in December 2019 by Ilene and Paul Nebrasky, with the goal of inspiring and building confidence in young adults during an important decision-making time in their lives. The Foundation provides assistance for college, vocational-school training and career and technical education, in addition to as-needed assistance for tools for trade schools, uniforms and transportation, among other items.
Babcock and Cossack, graduates of Tri-Valley High School, are planning career paths in electrical construction and will begin higher education in the fall. Both students received glowing letters of recommendation, were very active in their school and community and will use the funds to offset some costs of schooling.
“This scholarship will help my family and I with the cost of tuition toward my continued learning,” said Cossack, who will attend SUNY Delhi in the fall. “Hands-on learning is my strongest learning model, and although my college experience will look different than expected, I will still be able to gain hands-on learning. I am proud to be pursuing a trade. Thank you to The Nebrasky Foundation for continuing to support those going into trades.”
