The McCandless Democratic Committee has awarded $1,000 scholarships to a pair of North Allegheny seniors.

One of the scholarships will be given to Jordan Farrell, who plans to study political science at Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.

Farrell is currently working on the campaign committee for U.S. Rep. Connor Lamb, D-Mt. Lebanon, who represents the 18th congressional district. She also has volunteered with organizations including First Tee of Pittsburgh, UPMC Passavant Hospital and Soles4Souls.

Farrell is captain of the North Allegheny girls golf team and plans to continuing competing at college. She is the daughter of Richard and Kathleen Farrell.

A second scholarship was awarded to Matt Como, who plans to study engineering at Penn State University in the fall.

Como is a member of NA's National Honor Society and has been a member of the football team since sixth grade.

Como has performed community service work for North Hills Community Outreach, Animal Friends and the Woodlands Foundation.

He is the son of John and Anita Como.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
