Earlier this week, the Glenville Volunteer Fire Company announced its 2019 scholarship recipients: Stephanie Rota, Carley Sobel, Nicole Maloney, and James Heavey.

All four of the recipients embody what it means to be active community volunteers, as they’ve also been involved in several school activities while in Greenwich. The four will head off to college in the fall.

Rota will attend SUNY Maritime and was a Fire Explorer; Sobel, also a Fire Explorer, will go to Lynn University; Maloney served as a Greenwich Emergency Medical Services Explorer, and heads to Boston College; Heavey participated as a Fire Explorer, and will attend Hampden-Sydney College.

Exploring is an interactive, worksite-based career education program of the Boy Scouts of America. The emergency service Explorer posts in town are sponsored by the Glenville Volunteer Fire Company, GEMS, and the Greenwich Police Department, all under the auspices of the Greenwich Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

“It is a privilege to support the education of the fine scholars and community volunteers selected for this year’s Scholarships,” said Glenville Volunteer Fire Company Chief Michael Hoha.
