Two Queens natives are all smiles.

Flushing native and Stuyvesant High School senior Nancy Lin and Howard Beach resident and Archbishop Molloy High School senior Taylor Moss were two of five students to each receive a $16,000 college scholarship ($4,000 per year) from the Ronald McDonald House Charities Scholarship Program.

Both Moss and Lin said they were excited and honored that they received the award for their upcoming freshman year of college.

Moss will be attending the College of the Holy Cross and Lin will be at the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education.

In addition to winning to the prestigious scholarship by besting thousands of applicants, the students faced challenges during busy senior years.

“As an athlete I had to go through the recruiting process for the college application,” said Moss, who played for Archbishop Molloy’s softball team. “Applying for different scholarships was also challenging.”

Moss was also a peer tutor, helped out in her school’s blood drive and fundraiser for the Typhoon Haiyan Relief Program, and was a member of the environmental club.

Lin was part of the Arista Honor Society, attended many outreach programs, tutored children in her community for free, was a member of Stuyvesant’s Red Cross Club and got medals in national exams for Latin and Spanish.
