Maria Cipullo of Clayton is this year's recipient of the United Way of Northern New York, Inc., Joseph P. Landauer Memorial Scholarship. Maria is enrolled in the Associate in Applied Science program at Jefferson Community College, majoring in Zoo Technology. Maria works as an intern at the New York State Zoo at Thompson Park (shown here with baby otters). She recently wrote to us: "Through your generosity and that of others... obtaining my education has finally become a realistically obtainable goal." We can't think of a better person to receive our scholarship!
