PACF Scholarships Go to Local Area Students

The Princeton Area Community Foundation (PACF) has awarded more than $86,000 in scholarships to 28 high school and college students. The Community Foundation awarded $33,050 to 11 high school students who will begin college this fall, and renewed another $53,260 in scholarships to 17 college students who will return to classes in September.

“We’d like to congratulate these talented students, and we wish them success as they continue their studies,” said Jeffrey M. Vega, president and CEO of the Community Foundation. “We are able to help these students thanks to our generous donors who have created scholarship funds here.”

Among those awarded scholarships are Matthew Luke Hawes and James Verbeyst of Princeton High School, who won Princeton Post No. 76, American Legion Dr. Henry J. Frank Scholarship, which is $1,000 for four years. Matthew will attend Harvard College and James will go to Kean University.

Clay Sosis of Hopewell Valley Central High School was awarded the two-year Mary Ellen Wislar Memorial Scholarship, of $5,850.
