Putnam Valley Student A Success Against All Odds
Against all odds, Putnam Valley seventh grader Adriana Rodriguez has succeeded as a student, a peer role model, and as one amazing young woman. At a dinner to be held at the Rye Town Hilton on May 9, Adriana will receive an "Overcoming the Odds" Award from Student Advocacy, Inc., of Elmsford, an organization that seeks to recognize students who face and overcome significant obstacles to school success. Adriana is one of four to receive the award out of a large pool of nominations spanning Putnam, Westchester and Rockland counties.
