Local High School Student Receives $1,000 Timothy J. Rooney Distinguished Graduate Award

Shane Rafferty, Yonkers resident and recent graduate of Archbishop Stepinac High School, was selected as the 2017 recipient of the Timothy J. Rooney Distinguished Graduate Award. He was presented with the $1,000 scholarship on June 29 at the Lincoln Park Taxpayers Association (LPTA) meeting in Yonkers. LPTA worked closely with the Archbishop Stepinac High School administration to identify a deserving student who might otherwise not receive scholarship funding. Among notable attendees at the presentation was Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, who addressed the Association.
