Aryelle Barbagallo and Emily Gerth, both 2017 graduates of G. Ray Bodley High School, were awarded the Fulton Lions Club’s 2017 H. and Mary Dowd Memorial and John Scaringi scholarships respectively.
Each scholarship provides the winner with $750 per year for four years toward their college costs. Barbagallo, (second from left), will be attending Nazareth College where she will major in Physical Therapy. Gerth will be attending Elmira College where she will study nursing.
