173 Cheektowaga grads amassed $4 million in scholarships

School might be the last thing from their minds as summer is finally heating up, but this year’s graduates were the talk of the Cheektowaga Central School Board’s reorganization meeting Tuesday night.

Trustees learned that the 173 graduating seniors amassed more than $4 million in scholarships.

“The scholarships were phenomenal,” President Renee Wilson said.

Trustee Christine Adamczyk added that it was an honor to hand her daughter, Brittany, her diploma.

“Now I’m officially done with kids going through the high school,” she said with a tone that hinted at both pride and relief. She has four children who graduated from Cheektowaga Central.

Also during the meeting, the board re-elected Wilson as president and named Raymond Carr as vice president. Carr has been a trustee for 36 years, while Wilson has been with the board for a decade and won re-election in May.

Trustees also welcomed newcomer Matthew Weigand.

Mary Ann Miano was re-appointed as district clerk and Kaitlyn Tokarczyk as district treasurer.
