Two Massapequa High School 2022 graduating seniors, Alyssa Papasodero and Anthony Pereira, were recently awarded a $250 scholarship each from the Massapequa Elks Lodge #2162 for their work to prevent youth substance use in the Massapequas. Members of Massapequa Takes Action Coalition also recognized the graduates for helping youth navigate healthy decisions in the Massapequas. The Elks scholarship and MTAC Recognition Award are given annually to outstanding Massapequa High School Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) Club leaders who go above and beyond their volunteerism to prevent youth drug use and destructive decision making.
