This year’s recipient of the Hudson River Heritage $1000 Founders’ Scholarship Award is Cosette Veeder Shave of FDR High School in Hyde Park.
This scholarship represents an educational aspect of our mission to preserve the unique character of the Mid-Hudson Valley’s historic architecture, rural landscapes and scenic views through education, advocacy and community involvement. Applicants must be college-bound high school seniors from the Landmark District’s component school districts of Hyde Park, Rhinebeck, Red Hook, and Germantown who have shown an interest in the history of the area and have demonstrated this interest through participation in related activities.
Cosette’s application and interview on the significance of our local history and her personal interest and involvement in historic preservation made her the unanimous choice of the Hudson River Heritage Board of Directors. Cosette will be attending University of Mary Washington in the fall. Congratulations, Cosette!
