Investing in East End Students

Building Trades Students Receive Scholarship

The Southampton Business Alliance recently presented all East End students enrolled in any ESBOCES building trades program (Carpentry, Electrical, Plumbing, HVAC) with scholarship monies to put toward tools and protective clothing. Thirty-two students will share $7,000! This investment will help provide career skills to a new generation of students who will soon be able to reinvest in the local economies of their own Long Island communities.
