RYE, N.Y. -- Each year, Junior League of Westchester on the Sound awards a local high school senior a scholarship created in the memory of Margaret Manley.
The Margaret Manley Community Service Scholarship is intended to encourage and honor students’ voluntary participation in community affairs and to demonstrate the effectiveness of trained volunteers. This year, one scholarship in the amount of $4,000 is available to be awarded. The application can be viewed and downloaded at this website .
