Passes Dental Care wanted to do something special for a high school student in Manhasset; this student did not have to be the top of his or her class, this student did not need to be the fastest or strongest.
Passes Dental Care was looking for the student that possessed leadership by inspiring those around them. After reading many passionate, emotional and inspiring pieces, one seemed to stand out above all.
Alfred Polizzotto, a senior at Manhasset High School, was the recipient of the first annual Passes Dental Cares Scholarship of $1,000.
He did more than just community service because this scholarship is more than just that. Alfred motivated and encouraged those that did not see the value in education and uplifted them to believe that with education, determination and hard work, that they could accomplish anything.
Polizzotto continued to ignite the flame of inspiration when he encouraged a young girl to go through heart surgery, although she was afraid, which in turn saved her life.
Passes Dental Care saw a true leader in Alfred and was in awe of his actions, according to a Passes Dental press release.
