Shortslef presented with Shirley Chillson Cianfarano Scholarship

After successfully completing her freshman fall semester at Keuka College, Hannibal High School alumna Julia Shortslef (class of 2022) was recently presented with the Shirley Chillson Cianfarano Scholarship.

The $500 annual scholarship serves as a tribute to Cianfarano, a longtime guidance secretary in the Hannibal Central School District who left a lasting impact on the community. Upon her passing, family and friends created a scholarship in her name, which is awarded each year to a student who exhibits good character, commitment, leadership and academic achievement.

Shortslef met the criteria and will use the money to help defray some of the expenses associated with college, where she is pursuing a degree in occupational therapy.
