TFCU Awards Virginia Mulligan Memorial Scholarship To Stony Brook University Student
October 13, 2016
TFCU is proud to have awarded the Virginia Mulligan Memorial Scholarship to Ian Lesnick, a student in the Honors College at Stony Brook University. The scholarship reflects TFCU’s ongoing efforts to provide support and encouragement to local students within the communities it serves. Ian is a resident of Smithtown and a graduate of Smithtown High School West.
Virginia Mulligan, who served as a long-standing TFCU board member and for whom this scholarship is named, believed wholeheartedly in supporting the educational goals of bright young men and women. All tuition and fees will be paid for the scholarship student over two years.
Ian is in his sophomore year at Stony Brook University, majoring in Spanish Education. “Thanks to the financial assistance I have been provided, I have been able to take advantage of a great number of leadership positions across campus as well as other opportunities to learn and serve my community and the world,” Ian said. In January and May he traveled to Honduras to help construct a school with Students Helping Honduras.
“Ian Lesnick is a worthy recipient of the Virginia Mulligan Memorial Scholarship,” said Robert G. Allen, President/CEO of TFCU. “Virginia would have been impressed by his academic achievements thus far at Stony Brook University. At TFCU, we wish Ian well as he pursues his career goal to become a middle school and high school foreign language teacher.”
“I look forward to dedicating my career to not only broadening my students’ horizons by introducing them to foreign language and culture, but also by acting as a counselor or providing resources for any student in need,” Ian added.
