Louis and Sophie Offermann Palkowics Memorial Scholarship (Deadline: July 19, 2019)

Submitted by

Who Can Apply: Mrs. Herbert Reuner has initiated this scholarship in loving memory of her parents Louis and Sophie Offermann Palkowics who, while visiting relatives in Rifton, fell in love with the area and moved there from Brooklyn in 1922. Although Mr. Palkowics had been employed as a butcher in Brooklyn, he soon began working for Central Hudson helping to build the Dashville Dam.

Within a very short time, he was promoted to become the operator of the facility. Mrs. Reuner remembers both of her parents as dedicated, loving, and supportive individuals who were great achievers but always in a quiet and unassuming way. She recalls that her father was so well-liked that when he retired after many years at Central Hudson, his retirement dinner was the largest in the history of the company.

Deadline: July 19, 2019

Amount: $1,500
