Gershow Recycling, headquartered in Medford, New York, has announced that it has granted three additional environmental conservation scholarships to graduating seniors in New York state. Earlier this June, the company announced that had awarded two scholarships.
As a leading recycling company, Gershow awards the competitive scholarships in the amount of $1,000 to graduating seniors who have displayed exemplary efforts in the fields of environmental science or engineering while in high school and who plan to continue to pursue degrees in either of these programs.
The recipients who were announced in late June are:
Sana Husain of Lindenhurst High School; Lindenhurst, New York;
Chloe Golde of Bay Shore High School, Bay Shore, New York; and
William Burton of Walt Whitman High School, Huntington Station, New York.
Started in 1964 by Sam Gershowitz, Gershow Recycling began as a two-man operation with a tractor and trailer, a boom truck and the first portable car flattener. Now with the second generation carrying on the legacy, Gershow generates more than 750 jobs, contributing millions of dollars to the local economy while helping to preserve Long Island’s environment. Gershow has nine locations in Brooklyn, New Hyde Park, Valley Stream, Freeport, Lindenhurst, Huntington Station, Bay Shore, Medford and Riverhead, New York.
