The Rotary Club of Moorestown has awarded a total of $25,000 in college scholarships to 10 Moorestown High School students this June. The students were honored during the Rotary Club’s lunch meeting on June 12 where Rotarians heard from the students about their college of choice and their majors. They were each given $2,500. Rotarians enjoyed the opportunity to give “happy dollars” for those colleges where they themselves had attended.

“The scholarship recipients were selected on the basis of scholastic achievement, extracurricular activities and financial need,” said Jeremy Countess who serves as chair to the Scholarship Selection Committee.

2013 Moorestown Rotary Scholarship Winners are Brianna Frey (University of Florida), Madeline Gibbs (Drexel University), Bilal Muhammad (BCC), Desiree Williams (Stevenson University), Claudia Frumento (Richard Stockton College of NJ), Sabrina Marques (Boston University), Jeffrey Waldin (LaSalle University), David LaGatta (Lehigh University), Annaliese Sencindiver (McDaniel College) and Hannah Edenbaum (Boston University).
