NEWBURGH - The first annual Dale Prokosch Solar/Concept Car Scholarship Awards were given this year to two Newburgh Free Academy graduating seniors who have selflessly contributed to the NFA Solar Racing/Concept Car Team for at least two years. This year’s scholarships went to Connor Schafer, who will be attending Saint Rose in Albany, and Alexandra Morehead, who will be attending Harvard in the fall.

There are two $500 scholarships to be given each year, one to a male and one to a female, in the memory of Dale Prokosch, a 1976 NFA graduate who enthusiastically worked on cars throughout his high school years. Dale was known to help any other person for free who was in need of automotive work all through his teenage and adult years. Mrs. Margaret Prokosch generously donated the money for the scholarships in her son’s name.
