Kerstin Crum of Youngstown, a senior at Lewiston-Porter High School, is the recipient of the first Deal Realty Scholarship. Crum has been accepted into the State University of New York College at Brockport, where she plans to major in physical education.
While at Lew-Port, Crum was on the honor roll each year. She excelled in soccer, and was a member of the basketball and softball teams.
The mission of the scholarship is to provide financial assistance to a Lew-Port student who will be continuing his or her education at a community college, university or trade school. Financial assistance is based on academic performance, leadership potential and participation in the community.
Areas that are reviewed by the award committee include, but are not limited to, accomplishments, community service and a 30-second personal video. Scholarship funds are paid directly to the recipient.
