The Billy Kayser Memorial Scholarship

Each year, scholarships are offered to selected students, of Pearl River High School,who demonstrate thecharacteristics and qualities that guided Billy's life, including a passion for friendship. In keeping with the spirit of Billy, we are asking applicants to submit a 300-500 word essay on �What Friendship Means To Me�, explaining what these qualities mean to them, stating how they have demonstrated the qualities in their own life, and how they intend to pursue their academic and/or athletic goals in the context of friendship and love of life. The essay should include your experiences with having a good friend or being a good friend during your high school years. This essay contest is limited to seniors. Two winners will be chosen with each winner receiving a $1,000.00 scholarship to be used toward furthering their education. Your essay should include a cover letter with contact information such as your name, address and phone number, your birth date and the last 4 digits of your social security number (to be used to keep the essays anonymous) and should have a heading identifying it as �The Billy Kayser Friendship Essay�. On a separate sheet, submit your essay with ONLY YOUR BIRTHDAY and SS# (last 4 digits) on it. Submit completed essays to Mr. Hanlon by April 30, 2014. The winners will be announced at the Senior Awards Night Assembly on June 9, 2014.

Because of the never ending support of our Community we were able to provide each of the
Senior and Varsity student awards $1000 scholarships and each of the 8th grade St. Margaret's awards $250 scholarships.
We also partnered with Valentine Electric in 2004 and were able to donate a much needed scoreboard for
Orangetown's Babe Ruth League field.
In 2005 The Family and Friends of Billy Kayser were able to donate a scoreboard to the
Pearl River High School Baseball Team. And in 2007 we were able to
donate funds towards a new scoreboard for the new Tappan Zee High School Baseball Field.

We want to thank each of you from the bottom of our hearts for your generosity and support which allows us to do this.


We have also decided to establish an Appreciation Award to recognize friends of the Billy Kayser Memorial Foundation.
