The Soundshore St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee is delighted to present scholarships to two deserving candidates. Ms. Caitlyn Billie, having completed her studies at Westchester CC, will be attending SUNY Plattsburgh in the fall, majoring in Social Work.

She will continue her volunteer work at SUNY Plattsburgh.
Ms. Meghan Wright is a rising senior at Iona College, majoring in Political Science with a double minor in History and Security Threat Assessment and Terrorism Studies.

“Caitlin and Meghan are the reason why we as a committee do what we do”, said Jenny Maroney, Parade Committee Officer. “ We would like to thank the Sound Shore community for your constant support throughout the year. Being able to invest in Caitlin and Meghan’s future by having them understand their Irish heritage is the committee’s biggest reward.”
The Sound Shore St. Patrick's Day Parade Scholarship Committee has awarded over $30,000 in scholarships, a tradition that began eight years ago with the first parade. The Sound Shore St. Patrick's Day Parade is a celebration of Irish-American heritage and the American immigrant experience for the entire Sound Shore community, from Port Chester to Pelham.
