It is not knowledge, but the act of learning, not possession but the act of getting there, which grants the greatest enjoyment.

(Students need NOT apply as they are nominated by their coaches). 

In 2014 the Albanese family had the wonderful idea to fund and award two graduating

seniors from SHW a community service scholarship based solely upon their efforts to be

better citizens of their school and community regardless of their grade or prowess on the

field/court.  We loved this idea so much that we decided to continue this scholarship & want

to award one East & one West student.  While the limelight often shines on the star athlete, the

student with the 4.0 GPA, the student who belongs to the most clubs or the most honor societies, or even the student who raises the most money for a particular charity, we are NOT looking for that student.  We are looking to award the athlete who achieves success in less public ways.  We are looking for the student with the biggest heart, who is genuine, who helps others simply because it is the right thing to do, not for the recognition it may afford them.  We are looking for the student who works diligently, and selflessly for others, where the only gratification is in knowing that they have made a difference in someone else’s life. 

If your Coach feels that you know a student who meets these criteria, please click below and return or email the completed application form to Janet Reid at Jason Lambert's office.  If you have any questions, you can contact Christine Fitzgerald

The David Wolmetz Business Scholarship

In Loving Memory of Hauppauge's David Wolmetz

$1000 Scholarship for a Hauppauge Senior pursuing a Business Degree

Dave Wolmetz.jpg

David Wolmetz, a Hauppauge resident, husband, father & co owner of Urban Air passed away after complications due to his longstanding battle with Leukemia, this past June, 2023.  Dave's love of family, friends & community drove him to always be involved with a number of organizations. Dave loved his time as coach of his son and daughter's soccer team with Hauppauge Soccer League (HSL) and volunteered to serve as an HSL  Board member for a few years.  It was during this time, that he became passionate about helping the Hauppauge develop their own community park and founded the Hauppauge Recreation Development Association. In 2019, he opened  (with his best friend from elementary school as his partner), Long Island's first indoor adventure park in Lake Grove, Urban Air.

The Smithtown Children's Foundation Hauppauge chapter wanted to honor his legacy & so we have partnered with Dave's family to provide the David Wolmetz Business Scholarship for a deserving Hauppauge High School Senior.
