Washingtonville Central School New Scholarship

Hoops for Hayes will provide scholarships annually to students at Washingtonville Central School District.

WASHINGTONVILLE – The Hoops for Hayes Fund was recently established within the Community Foundation to provide grants towards the purchase of equipment and charitable projects and also to provide scholarships annually to students. Eligible students are Washingtonville Central School District Seniors who have participated in at least one sport during the ir high school career and who have maintained a minimum GPA of 80%.

The fund was established in memory of Joseph Charles Hayes who embodied the idea of living life to the fullest.
