Two recent area graduates received this year’s Laurie Anzivine Memorial Scholarship awards, managed by the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation.

Hailey Jones, an Allegany-Limestone Central School graduate, and Jocelyn Wyatt, of Ellicottville Central School, received the Laurie Anzivine Memorial Scholarship, each receiving an award of $1,000.

A scholarship program of the Pink Pumpkin Project, this fund supports two awards –for a graduating student of a Cattaraugus County high school or of a Pennsylvania high school in the region served by the Pink Pumpkin Project (30-40 mile radius of Olean, NY) – who have had an immediate family member or guardian go through cancer treatment.

Applicants must also submit an essay explaining what they learned from their family member or guardian who struggled with cancer and the impact it left on them and what advice they would give to someone else who may face the same situation.

Jones plans to attend Jamestown Community College to study business or independent studies. Wyatt will attend St. Bonaventure University, where she will study nursing.

Donations can be made to the Laurie Anzivine Memorial Scholarship Fund at CRCF, 301 North Union St., Suite 203 or online at cattfoundation.org.
