“As a recipient of the Held Scholarship, affording school has become much more manageable.  Because of this, I am further able to pursue my dreams and fulfill my goals at Queens College.”

Sam Spoto is a Junior majoring in Psychology.  He plans to pursue a career in counseling, and hopes to work as a guidance counselor in a high school while also working part-time in the private sector.  He currently works at an afterschool program at a local public school where he helps students with their homework while also participating in various recreational and educational activities with them.  Sam believes that Queens College is a place where a diverse student body, inspirational professors, and an all-around positive, encouraging environment come together to compel students to chase their dreams and fulfill their ambitions in life.
