Lyndsay McCabe, a Hofstra University graduate student, will get $1,500 from the credit union towards her studies.

A Nesconset resident received a $1,500 scholarship towards her continuing education at Hofstra University for her academic achievements, courtesy of the credit union NEFCU.

Lyndsay McCabe was given the “Making a Difference College Scholarship," one of five graduate students from Long Island to receive it. 

“During Lyndsay’s graduate studies at Hofstra University she has demonstated explemplary academic success and we would like to acknowledge her hard work,” said Valerie Garguilo, Vice President of Marketing & Community Relations for NEFCU. 

Lyndsay, a resident of Nesconset, has been awarded a $1,500 to fund her continuing education by NEFCU, a leading credit union serving all of Long Island’s banking needs. NEFCU’s scholarship program recognized five graduate students from Long Island colleges and universities for their outstanding academic achievements

McCabe, who is going into the education field, said her studies will directly apply to her field and hopes to teach creative writing.

“Graduate school has been interesting, as I can actively apply what I learned to my daily substitute teaching assignments, and provide immediate feedback to my professors on what works and what doesn’t," said McCabe. "I hope to become a Middle School or High School English Teacher. I love creative writing and aspire to teach that."

She has not written for Patch for quite some time, as Patch drastically cut staff.
