QUEENSBURY, NY: Each year, the Southern Adirondack REALTORS, Inc., a non-profit, professional association servicing Warren, Washington, and portions of Essex and Hamilton Counties, awards scholarships to local High School graduating Seniors whose parents or grandparents are REALTOR or Affiliate members. This year, the Scholarship Committee of the Southern Adirondack REALTORS, Inc. is very pleased to award the following graduating High School Seniors scholarships based on their outstanding applications.  The decision was not an easy one with one of the largest pools of applicants to date to select from, and once again, the academic excellence, references and civic mindedness of all the applicants was impressive. After careful deliberation, the Association’s Scholarship Committee has decided to award the following scholarships to seven deserving students.  A recognition reception was held by the association at the Glens Falls Country Club on Wednesday, June 20.  Family members, association REALTOR Members and students attended.  The Recognition event was officiated by committee chair, William “Bill” Sara.
