Reynolds & Rowella awards scholarships to NCHS students
Since the awards are department specific, selection is made by the staff of the High School's business education program who select recipients for having shown an aptitude for accounting and finance.
Janice Kunst, CPA of Reynolds & Rowella presented a check for $500 to each student at an awards ceremony held on June 3. The award recipients are Robert Rutkowski who will attend Fordham University, and Joseph Costigan who will attend the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
"The partners and staff at Reynolds & Rowella are committed to supporting their profession and the communities in which they live and work," Frank Rowella, CPA, said. "We are pleased to recognize two talented students who we hope may be encouraged to consider a future in the accounting profession."

Robert Lodewick and Joseph Messina, both of Wilton High School, and Nicole Gutter and Olivia Marra, both of Ridgefield High School, were also award recipients this year.
