In 2014, friends and family of Zachary Possemato established a scholarship to be known as the Zachary Possemato Memorial Scholarship Fund available for Hancock Central School students, through the Hancock Community Education Foundation. This fund will be for graduates of Hancock Central School, with preference to a student who has a love for the outdoors.
Zachary was a member of St. Paul’s Church in Hancock, where he was an Altar Server. He participated in Boy Scouts and was a proud volunteer in the Hancock Fire Department. Zack loved being outdoors and especially loved to fish. He was very kind hearted, selfless, and caring, which was shown through his daily life, helping elderly folks in his community, and watching out for his family and friends.
