This year's PFLAG Buffalo/Niagara Scholarships have been awarded.
The winner of the Mary L. Hewitt Award is a graduating senior from Cheektowaga Central High School who will attend SUNY Buffalo for nursing.
The Marvin J. Henchbarger Award has been given to a senior from Williamsville East who will attend the University of Michigan for civil engineering.
A third scholarship funded by The Buffalo Bears was made possible this year. The winner of this award attended Byron-Bergen High School and will be attending SUNY Fredonia for social studies education and political science.
All winners demonstrated a commitment to LGBTQ people and the community, and have been active in high school as advocates and pledged to continue this activism in the future. We were inspired by all of their stories; we wish them well as they move on to their universities studies and experiences!
