The Outstanding Student Scholarship was awarded to WAJ graduate Keily Linger, a student who excels in academics, sports, and community service. Keily was a National Honor Society member since ninth grade and the 14th student to receive the $12,000 grant. Devoted to helping others, Keily was always the first to volunteer where needed. She participated in the after-school tutoring program, Autumn Affair, Chili Fest, and Hurricane Irene Clean Up. She was a finalist in the “We the People” competition as part of her New Visions class. Throughout high school, Keily was a star athlete in soccer, cross country and basketball. The Windham Foundation wishes Keily the best of luck as she starts the next chapter of her life at SUNY Albany where she will study public policy.
