Ahmya Carrube, of Saugerties, has been awarded a $1000 scholarship by The Friends of the Saugerties Public Library.


Carrube, a daughter of Lisa Carrube, plans to major in music education at the University of Hartford, Connecticut.


Carrube is an alto who began performing in third grade and then joined choir and band in fourth grade.  She plays piano and trumpet.


Carrube is a long-time volunteer at the Boys and Girls Club where she is willing to help in any way she can.  She has participated in the Club's Holiday in the Village activities as well as distributing Thanksgiving Dinners, among others.


"It is always a pleasure to award the Friends' Scholarship to students engaged in community service.  They are a beacon for our future.  We congratulate Ahmya," said Jennifer Kavanagh, co-president of the Friends.
