Bellport High School senior Evelyn Soto has earned a full four-year college scholarship through the QuestBridge Match Scholarship Program.

Soto is one of more than 17,000 applicants to earn a QuestBridge scholarship, which connects high-achieving high school seniors from low-income backgrounds with full four-year scholarships to 48 of the nation’s best colleges.

Through the scholarship program, Soto will be heading to Amherst College in the fall to study political science or law.

Soto said she selected the college for its campus and campus community. “The students are close and there are also resources available through QuestBridge,” she said.

In addition to being academically talented, Soto is president of her school’s National Honor Society, a community service officer for the Math Honor Society, a member of the Students for Environmental Quality club, and a writer for her school’s literary magazine, Fathom. She also plays varsity tennis.

The South Country Central School District congratulates Evelyn Soto on her outstanding academic accomplishment.
