Nick Monthalvo, a 2016 William Floyd High School graduate, recently received a $1,130.70 college scholarship thanks to Adventureland’s Helping Hands Foundation and the students at Tangier Smith Elementary School who recycled more than 11,000 bottles throughout the school year. The funds collected in the recycling effort were equally matched by the Helping Hands Foundation. Adventureland also provided the team of students that recycled the most bottles with a free day pass at the park. Nick was a Tangier Smith Elementary School student for part of his academic career at William Floyd. He will attend Suffolk County Community College in the fall.
