Louis J. Acompora was a young man who loved life, loved lacrosse, and loved everyone who was fortunate enough to have been part of his life. He was an outstanding goalie who dreamed of one day playing for the University of Virginia. Yet Louis also understood the fundamental importance of academic achievement and active involvement in the school community. Indeed, he was an energetic and thoughtful person who always had a smile and a kind word for others.
The Louis J. Acompora Memorial Scholarship was established to honor the memory of this truly exceptional young man. Northport High School students applying for this award must exhibit the characteristics of modesty and selflessness, as well as a genuine concern for improving the human condition in the community at large. Moreover, the applicant for this scholarship should have a fundamental belief in the value of kindness and compassion with respect to those who face difficult circumstances in their daily lives.
