Senior receives M-EALS leadership scholarship

Luke and M-EALS committee members

When Luke Kaczynski decided to volunteer in the M-EALS pantry in ninth grade, he saw it as a way to keep busy and give back to his community. Fast forward four years. Luke is now about to graduate and over the course  of his HS career, Luke has given 100’s of hours of his time to serving our Spartans in need, helping to organize the M-EALS pantry and packing delivery bags, to accepting food deliveries and becoming an integral part of the program’s success.

For his leadership and dedication to M-EALS and the students the program serves, the M-EALS and Leadership committee awarded Luke a $500 scholarship. 

“I wouldn’t trade it for the world,” Luke said of his experience as a M-EALS volunteer. He said he’s learned many life lessons from his volunteerism, including time management and organizational skills. But most importantly, Luke has learned the impact it can have on our Spartan community.

“Giving back is special about Maine-Endwell,” he said. “We’re responsible for watching out for each other. You’re making a real difference in the community.”

Congratulations Luke!
