Friends of Mt. Lebanon Library has awarded its $1,000 scholarship to Sadie Saxton. The Friends presents a scholarship annually to a Mt. Lebanon High School senior who has volunteered 55 hours or more at the library. Saxton has volunteered more than 110 hours since 2013. In addition to volunteering, Saxton works at Fleet Feet and is a member of the cross country and track teams. She will attend Bowdoin College in the fall.
Seton-LaSalle senior Joe Farnan will be attending the U.S. Naval Academy this fall, which was his first choice over the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Farnan is the first Seton-LaSalle student to be accepted to both military academies. Candidates are assessed according to their academic, athletic and leadership achievements. The process for obtaining an appointment takes almost a full year, and a successful applicant must be nominated by a member of Congress. Each congressman has only one nomination per academy per year.
