Tommy Car Auto Group awarded two students each with a $1,000 scholarship to attend college this fall. The Scholarship received an overwhelming number of applicants this year, totaling over 100 applications by local students. Lily Rogers of Northampton High School will be attending Yale University. Allison Jenks of Hopkins Academy will be attending University of Connecticut. Both students demonstrated excellence in the classroom and in the community.
The Tom Cosenzi Scholarship was established to honor the memory of Thomas E. Cosenzi. When Thomas E. Cosenzi passed away in 2009, it was not only ownership of the TommyCar Auto Group that passed to his children, Carla and Thomas, but his legacy of giving back to the community. That legacy was evident when the two recipients of the 2017 Tom Cosenzi Scholarship were awarded their checks for $1,000.
“The Tom Cosenzi Scholarship is dedicated to assisting High School graduates in furthering their education,” said Carla Cosenzi, President of TommyCar Auto Group. “The combination of academic achievement and community leadership exhibited by these students underscores the core values of this scholarship.”
