Flanked by Vice Commodore Phil Ferrante, left, and Commodore Sal Groe, Glen Cove graduating senior Matthew Gallo recently accepted a scholarship check awarded to him for his essay on an environment-related topic.
Glen Cove High School staff select the winner based on the best essay submitted. Gallo will be attending the New York State College of Environmental Science and Forestry, part of Syracuse University, this fall to begin his undergraduate studies.
Gallo thanked the membership at the June 10 general meeting for the opportunity. Proud parents Louise and John Gallo accompanied their son to the Anglers Club on Garvies Point Road to accept his award.
