Last Thursday, July 10th, the Pride Center held its annual Youth Scholarship Reception in Selkirk at the gorgeous Hudson River-side home of Tom & Lisa Evans. It was an incredibly successful evening where four remarkable LGBTQ youths were honored with scholarships to assist them with financing their future higher education goals.


Congratulations again to the following four scholarship recipients:

Anna Brewer

Taylor Keith

Troy O’Neill

AJ Rio-Glick

We wish them the best of luck with their future endeavors!


This year’s reception also marked the occasion of an exciting development for the future of the scholarship program. We are pleased to announce that starting next year, the Pride Center Youth Scholarship will be known as The David, Gladys and Candace Groudine Pride Center Youth Scholarship. 

This re-naming has taken place in honor of the Groudine’s, who have agreed to cover the scholarship cost for two youths in the coming years of the program. The Pride Center is incredibly grateful for this gift and we want to say a huge THANK YOU to the Groudine’s for all their support of the scholarship program and for their amazing generosity.
