Andrew J. Luft Memorial Award

This scholarship is in honor of Andrew Luft who passed away suddenly earlier this year. Andrew is the son of our very own Pat Luft who is the backbone of the LIASEA organization. Andrew was an outstanding Restaurant General Manager on Long Island. In his honor we will award this scholarship to someone in the field.  Many of our special needs students attend BOCES Culinary Arts Programs so this scholarship will be awarded to one of these students. The requirements are successful enrollment in a culinary arts program and upon graduation continuing in the field.
