    Kimberly Pokstis- Won College Education Scholarship
"I was awarded the College Education Scholarship for the 2017 season, as a freshman at Stony Brook University. The scholarship will supplement my education as I study as a biology major on the Pre-Med track. I am incredibly grateful to the Western Hudson Valley PHA for providing scholarships such as this one that allow local riders to do more than their own financial abilities allow." -Kimberly
