Annual Arthur Kunz Memorial Scholarship Breakfast
Friday, May 10, 2013, 8AM – 10 AM
Andrew P. Freleng, Chief Planner, Suffolk County Planning
On May 10th, the APA Long Island Section will hold its annual Arthur Kunz Memorial Scholarship Breakfast between 8:00 AM and 10 AM at Molloy College’s Suffolk Center at Republic Airport (see directions). Each year, the best and brightest of Long Island’s future and young planners strive for the Arthur Kunz Scholarship, which allows for the recipient to attend the annual American Planning Association Conference.
This year, the need for continued planning efforts was showcased when Hurricane Sandy rumbled up the eastern coast, directly hitting the region and changing the way the public perceived the role of municipal government and its planners. The region is rebuilding stronger than ever, and these young planners are carrying out the tradition that Arthur Kunz started in Suffolk County: furthering their planning education while helping Long Island once again set the national precedent in creating the balance between both regional sustainability and economic prosperity.
Planning is crucial to helping Long Island become resilient to the challenges that lay ahead, and the Arthur Kunz Scholarship helps ensure the best and brightest are given the tools to succeed.
