MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – Vital members of the Mount Vernon school community will be celebrated by the PTA next week at the annual Scholarship Dinner Dance.
The dance will start at 7 p.m. on March 15 at the VIP Country Club in New Rochelle. Tickets will cost $65 per person, with all proceeds going to fund scholarships for high school seniors that have been accepted into college.
At the dance, each of the 17 schools will honor an individual that has made significant contributions to help the district and its students. The PTA Council will also celebrate Akia Shangai, the clerk to the Trustee Board in the district.
Last year’s event allowed the district to award six $1,000 scholarships to students, and in 2011, nine scholarships were given out.
