New York American Water congratulates Steven Trezza of West Hempstead for being selected as recipient of the National Association of Water Companies (NAWC) New York Chapter Scholarship.
As a member of the NAWC, New York American Water presented Steven with a $2,500 scholarship.
“Steven showed great potential and passion through his application,” said William Varley, President of NYAW and Chairman of the New York Chapter of the NAWC. “He has demonstrated all the necessary tools to succeed in the science industry, and we congratulate him on being selected for this award.”
