Brittany Flaherty of East Moriches is the winner of the very first $1,000 scholarship awarded by the FPF4A. It is given to a graduating senior with autism who will be attending college and Brittany is headed for Suffolk Community College this fall.  The daughter of Antonia and Kevin Flaherty, Brittany hopes to be a museum curator. This is an amazing accomplishment for a young lady whose parents were told she'd never learn to read.  

We were thrilled to present her with a check toward her studies and we have no doubt she will succeed given her extensive high school resume, which includes marching band, Key Club, junior prom committee, Rotary Interact, yearbook and so much more. Congrats Brittany from all of us at FPF4A!
