3 North Allegheny seniors receive scholarships from McCandless Democratic Committee
The McCandless Democratic Committee has awarded a pair of $1,000 college scholarships to North Allegheny seniors — Nina Ruffolo and Roshie Xing.
A third senior, Kacey Yip, received a $500 honorarium recognizing her high school achievements.
The annual scholarship program is open to North Allegheny high school seniors who are registered Democrats — or are the child of a Democrat.
Applicants also must have a QPA of 3.0 or higher and volunteer in community and school activities.
Ruffolo plans to attend New York University Shanghi in the fall to study international relations.
Roshie plans to attend the University of Pennsylvania in the fall to study mathematical economics.
Yip plans to attend Washington University in St. Louis to study psychological and brain sciences with a minor in speech and hearing as a pre-physical therapy student.
