Rothco's Jeff Galloway Memorial Scholarship was established in honor of Jeff, a long-time employee and manager at Rothco. Jeff faced many challenges in his life. His untimely death prompted Rothco to create this scholarship as a way of honoring his life and memory.
This year's recipient of the Jeff Galloway Memorial Scholarship is Jackie Janicky of Longwood High School in Long Island, New York. I had the honor in speaking with Jackie and her BOCES Social Worker, Ms. Roland, about what this scholarship means to her and how grateful she is to have won it.

"The Rothco scholarship is wonderful, not only does Jackie receive $6000, it also pays for the cost of books, which is something you don't see most scholarships do." said Ms. Roland.
It was under Ms. Roland suggestion that Jackie entered the Scholarship in which she wrote an essay illustrating how she learned to deal with living with family members suffering with substance abuse.
"I am so grateful for this opportunity, It means so much to me, that I can now go away to college" said Jackie on her thoughts about winning the Rothco scholarship. Besides thanking Rothco, Jackie also wanted to thank Ms. Roland, because without her she would not be where she is today...which is on her way to college.
