Farmingville, NY - On March 27, Councilwoman Jane Bonner attended the Suffolk County VFW Council Voice of Democracy Award Ceremony to honor Wading River High School student Jordan McClintock. Jordan earned 1st place in the County and 2nd Place in the District. This annual nationwide scholarship program is sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars. It is an audio-essay contest for high school students in grades 9-12. The program annually provides more than $2.3 million in scholarships. The first-place winner, who competes with all the first-place VFW Department winners, receives a $30,000 scholarship that is paid directly to the recipient's American university, college or vocational/technical school.
“I congratulate Jordan for her outstanding achievement,” said Councilwoman Bonner. “Youngsters like her set a great example for their peers and are a credit to their family and the community.”
