Joseph Congelosi Jr.
& Huda Badr Memorial Scholarship
Joseph Congelosi Jr. and Huda Badr grew up as neighbors on North Catherine Street in Plattsburgh. Graduates of the Plattsburgh High School Class of 2001, Joe and Huda were both known for their kindness and generosity. After Joe and Huda tragically passed away a few weeks apart in 2016, their classmates set up this scholarship to honor them and to support a post-graduation learning experience for PHS students who embody the characteristics that defined Joe and Huda.

A fundraiser for the Joseph Congelosi & Huda Badr Memorial Scholarship
Join us for the Fifth Annual Congopalooza on Friday, August 20th at Oval Craft Brewing in Plattsburgh. We're planning for a safe, in-person event this year, and will have all the usual fun: raffle prizes and great food and live music. Mark your calendars, stay tuned for more information, and let us know if you have any questions! Thanks, as always, for your generous support of this event and the Joseph Congelosi and Huda Badr Memorial Scholarship.
"Joe was the absolute best. He set the bar for living right and doing right. Maybe two of the legacies he leaves us is to be kind to whomever we meet, and to be a good person. We are all so privileged to have known him."
