Fallsburg High School Senior earns 2021 Salon Memorial Scholarship

Posted

FALLSBURG - Ennie Li, a graduating senior at Fallsburg High School, has been named the 2021 recipient of the Marion and Philip Salon Memorial Scholarship Award.

Ennie will receive $1,000 toward her first year of post-secondary studies.

Ennie is the daughter of Yan Hui Lin and Li Zhen Hui of South Fallsburg. She plans to study this fall at Binghamton University. She was selected as the scholarship recipient for her perseverance in overcoming a serious personal injury in 10th grade to become the salutatorian in her graduating class of 102.

The scholarship, which is named in memory of two lifelong Hurleyville residents, is designated annually for one or more graduating seniors at Fallsburg Central School who has made a serious commitment to service in ways that benefit the community and its citizens or have overcome a significant personal challenge.

The annual Salon scholarship is funded by the children and relatives of Marion and Phil Salon, whose two children, Shep and Rebecca, graduated from Fallsburg Central High School in the 1960s.

Marion and Phil Salon were the owners and operators of a bungalow colony and Salon's Corners, a convenience store, over a 40-year period. Mr. Salon served for 24 years on the board of education of the Fallsburg Central Schools.
