Spencerport Education Foundation John Reuping Memorial Scholarship
This scholarship is awarded annually in recognition of long time Spencerport resident John Reuping and his love of engineering.
Each year, several students are selected to receive this award thanks to the generous donations. Each student will receive a gift of $5,000 toward their college studies in engineering. Students must attend a 4-year institution with an ABET certified engineering program and must complete the first semester of study at college with a minimum 3.0 GPA.
We acknowledge and appreciate the assistance of the high school's Local Scholarship Committee in assisting us in the selection and administration process. Their partnership is truly indispensable.
This year's recipients are Ryan Choate, Cameron Domenico, Joshua Gormel, Delila MacLeod, and Kennedy Mueller. Our most hearty congratulations to all five students!

During the spring of 2020 while the world faced the unprecedented challenges of COVID-19, we partnered with the Spencerport Central School District to make a difference for families affected by the pandemic in our own community. By partnering with local restaurants, we provided over 22,000 subsidized low cost dinners to local families while also providing tens of thousands of dollars of much needed support to our local restaurants. This was made possible through the generous support of community members, and local businesses, charities, and community organizations. The outpouring of financial support was inspiring and truly impactful. Thank you to our community partners:

Spring 2020 Awards
Our spring 2020 awards cycle, like so many other parts of our lives, was disrupted by COVID-19. We received many impressive grant applications and our awards committee reviewed them and selected our first SEF award recipients. Recipients received notification of their award just before school was put on hold. We are in the process of helping staff use their funds, however the process of getting the funds to the teachers and the teachers using those funds to enhance their classroom experiences has obviously been affected. We anticipate sharing the results of this first awards cycle with you in the fall.
