SEPTA is pleased once again to announce its Annual Scholar Award Fund Drive. Last year, due to everyone’s generous contributions, Awards of Excellence were granted to ten graduating seniors from Plainview-Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School. The purpose of this award is to help the seniors further their education at either a college or vocational program of their choice. The deserving recipients all had courageously overcome a disability while pursuing their academic careers. This year’s awards will be presented at the Senior Awards Night Ceremony on June 11, 2020 at 7:00PM at POBJFK High School. All monies raised will be awarded to the chosen seniors that evening.


You cannot imagine the positive difference your collective contributions make in the future of the graduating seniors who receive this award. On the night of the ceremony, the seniors’ feelings of achievement, self-confidence and pride are evident on their faces as they accept their Awards of Excellence. In the bestowing of these awards, their years of hard work and perseverance are recognized and applauded. Won’t you please help out again this year and bring joy once more to these young adults who anticipate the future with hopes and dreams yet to be fulfilled?


SEPTA, our families and our students thank you for your continued support; past, present and future. Your generous contributions are greatly needed and greatly appreciated!
