The scholarships were awarded based on their winning essay submissions on the theme: “picking an experience from your life and explaining how it has shaped you for the career you have selected.”

Rebecca Berner was an active participant on the varsity girls’ basketball, field hockey and track and field teams. She will pursue a career as a nurse family practitioner when she enters St. John Fisher College in Rochester this fall.

Thomas Ragonese was captain and MVP of the boys’ varsity basketball team at Roy-Hart. He plans to pursue a career in agriculture while attending Cairn University in Langhorne Manor, PA. His life experience in working on local farms was supplemented by the agricultural and food science studies he undertook at Roy-Hart.

“As a company dedicated to our local community, FMC is proud again to honor two outstanding Roy-Hart graduates by providing them with scholarships as well as best wishes as they undertake their career studies in college,” said Brent Sensenich, FMC Middleport plant manager.
