FRIENDS OF LETCHWORTH STATE PARK SCHOLARSHIP AWARD

Pierce McPherson is this year's winner of the Friends of Letchworth scholarship contest.

The theme of this year's competitive essays was "How the philanthropy of William Pryor Letchworth changed our region and how the philanthropy of a local person from our five county area has also changed our region." The contest was open to all senior class members of the five schools surrounding Letchworth State Park.

Pierce is a senior at Letchworth Central School. In addition to graduating from the Gainesville-based school district at the end of June, he also graduated from Genesee Community College on Saturday, June 6 with an associate degree in natural sciences. Pierce plans to attend Cornell University to study psychology.

The FOLSP Scholarship is a $1,000 award funded by the Friends of Letchworth State Park and donations from individuals interested in promoting the park through a yearly scholarship program. Presentation of the award was made by Park Manager Douglas Kelly in an outdoor ceremony at the Humphrey Nature Center. Pierce was accompanied by his mother, Kate Shearing.
