High School a Finalist for College-Prep Prize

College Board taps Sleepy Hollow, seven others nationally.

Sleepy Hollow High School is one of eight finalists in a national competition that recognizes excellence in helping to prepare economically and culturally challenged students for college, Principal Carol Conklin-Spillane told the school board last week.

Chosen from hundreds of applicants, three finalist schools will each receive $25,000, saluting their college-prep programs and partnerships of teachers, parents and community organizations. Each of the remaining five schools could receive $1,000.

The Gaston Caperton Inspiration Award, presented each spring by the College Board, celebrates a commitment by school and community to surmount the tough odds that confront some of their students. College Board representatives are expected to visit Sleepy Hollow next month.
