Newfield High School (NHS) senior Natalie Brendle recently received a senior scholarship from the Long Island String Festival Association (LISFA). The $600 scholarship was awarded for her outstanding performance in orchestra.
“We are proud of Natalie and all her accomplishments,” said Scott Graviano, Principal of Newfield High School. “She is a wonderful example for other students and what can be accomplished with hard work and dedication.”
