West Pittston Cherry Blossom Festival Committee recently presented its annual scholarship to Wyoming Area’s Stephen Sokach-Minnick. Sokach-Minnick has been part of the West Pittston Cherry Blossom since he was a little boy. He has donated his time with Scout Master Patrick Messina, Troop 302, behind the food stand preparing the food and also cleaning up after the festival. The Cherry Blossom Festival’s scholarship committee selects the recipient each year based on service to the community. The award was presented during the Wyoming Area Scholarship Celebration on May 23.
