2018 PMHS Graduate attending Oxford University Spring of 2021
I would like to thank the Village of Pelham for the support they have given me over the years.
Organizations such as The Pelham Civics Association, Community Church of the Pelhams, The Manor Club, and many others who give a generous amount of scholarships each year have made it possible for me and many others to continue our education post High School graduation. Two years ago a number of scholarships allowed me to attend Vassar College where I am currently studying Psychology and Education. I have worked as a research assistant, a translator for Hagase Contar 2020 Census, a librarian, and a student teacher. I have been a mentor to Freshmen, played bingo with senior citizens, helped raise money for immigrants, built houses with Habitat for Humanity, and encouraged other first generation students to pursue their dreams in Higher Education. I have gained a number of interpersonal and intrapersonal skills since the two years I graduated from Pelham Memorial High School.
This spring I will be studying at St. Edmund Hall in Oxford University where I will be focusing on clinical and developmental psychology. This would also have not been possible without the endless support and encouragement from my parents John and Elizabeth Pennetta who have always believed in me.
