STUDENT ADVOCACY TO HONOR FOUR OUTSTANDING STUDENTS AT 19th ANNUAL OVERCOMING THE ODDS AWARDS DINNER THURSDAY, MAY 15th
(ELMSFORD, N.Y.) – Four deserving Westchester students who have known extreme adversity in their young lives will be honored at Student Advocacy’s 19th annual Overcoming the Odds awards dinner on Thursday, May 15th, at the historic Tappan Hill Mansion, located at 81 Highland Avenue in Tarrytown, starting at 6:30 p.m.
The Awards Dinner, an annual awards program and fundraiser for Student Advocacy, Inc., a Westchester-based nonprofit, recognizes students from Westchester and Putnam Counties who have overcome the odds to achieve school success. Past winners have included students who have faced severe learning disabilities, life-altering family issues (such as homelessness, domestic violence and substance abuse) and serious, often life-threatening illnesses.
Student Advocacy’s mission is to be powerful and effective advocates for families with students who are educationally at risk. Proceeds from the dinner support the agency’s work to help all students overcome the odds.
