Ames Sponsors Pass It Along Scholar Athlete Natalie Armstrong of Wallkill Valley
Every year, in recent venture, Ames has sponsored student athletes as a way to come together with our community and recognize athletic and academic achievements of very talented local high school students. This year, we are very proud to sponsor Natalie Armstrong of Wallkill Valley Regional Highschool which is right in our backyard.
Academically, Natalie has appeared on the honor roll nine times and is an active member in many honor societies. She has also served as the Vice President of NEHS, Vice President for Health and Science Society, and Senior Class President. Athletically, Natalie is a three-sport varsity athlete in field hockey, basketball, and softball, serving as captain for both the field hockey and basketball teams. She participates in many community service activities as well, through clubs such as FBLA, and has dedicated over 200 hours serving her community. She is passionate about helping animals and has served approximately 500 hours at Black Pegasus at Sherwood Farm.
We are honored to sponsor Natalie and look forward to seeing great things from her in years to come. Congratulations!
About the Scholar Athlete Event
The Scholar Athlete program originated with United Way of Northern New Jersey to bring our communities together to celebrate the academic and athletic accomplishments of local high school students. Pass It Along inherited the program in 2014 and has since incorporated a community service component to the program. High School Seniors from twelve local school districts are nominated by their Principals and Athletic Directors for their hard-work, altruism, and ambition both in the classroom and on the field.
