Six recent area graduates recently received the Gregory D. Spring Perseverance Scholarship, an annual scholarship managed by the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation.

Matthew Antonioli of Olean High School, Gabe Kellogg of Allegany-Limestone Central School, Hinsdale Central School’s Megan Jozwiak and Portville Central School’s Hannah Cole, Leigha Haberly and Nathan Kloc received the award this year, each for $500.

Established in memory of Gregory Spring of Allegany by his family, this scholarship is available to graduating seniors of Olean High School, Allegany-Limestone, Portville and Hinsdale Central schools pursuing a degree or certification, preferably, in a trade or technical program.

The annual distribution from this fund also will pay for the purchase of award plaques (2 per year) to be given to the players that exemplify sportsmanship at the annual Allegany-Limestone Central School Gator Cup soccer tournament.

Antonioli will study sociology at SUNY Geneseo. Kellogg will attend Alfred University to study renewable energy engineering. Jozwiak will study nursing at Jamestown Community College.

Cole plans to study international relations at SUNY Geneseo. Haberly will study biochemistry at St. Bonaventure University. Kloc will attend Houghton College to study biology with an environmental emphasis

The Spring scholarship has made possible over $10,000 in support for area students over the years.
