SBPLI and Farmingdale State College Host Fred Breithut Scholarship Fundraiser Breakfast
On December 6, School Business Partnerships of Long Island, Inc. (SBPLI) held its third annual holiday fundraising breakfast at Farmingdale State College’s Knapp Hall to benefit the Fred Breithut Scholarship. The theme of this year’s breakfast was “Investment in Our Future.”
The scholarship, named after the late founder of SBPLI, is made possible for up to four years, with an amount of $1,000 per semester. Among the requirements for students to become eligible are enrollment in the SBPLI Long Island robotics program while in high school for at least two years; an SAT score of 1650 or better; and enrollment in Farmingdale State College’s four-year programs in math, science or technology. The 2012 winning recipient will be named at the LI FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition, which will take place on March 29-31, 2012.
