On Monday, June 13, at the South Side High School Senior Awards evening the Rockville Centre Education Foundation awarded a $1000 scholarship to senior Nicholas Giangregorio.  

The Foundation annually presents the scholarship to the South Side high school senior who best demonstrates in his/her submission how a Foundation grant(s) enriched their academic careers.

Nicholas’ submission detailed how the Middle School Robotics Club, funded by an RVC Ed Foundation grant, instilled a passion for computer technology and engineering. In High School, Nicholas became the lead programmer for Robotics and wrote the Robotics Team Engineering Notebook. Nicholas grew as an engineer and programmer, as well as a teammate and leader. For Nicholas Robotics was a truly unforgettable experience that taught him many valuable skills and lessons
