The New Providence Business Community is proud to announce the recipients of the 2012 Business Community scholarships.
Two $1,500 scholarships were awarded to Gabriel Lyons and Kelly Gorczyk, who have an interest in business and show entrepreneurial spirit. Both students were selected by the New Providence High School.
Gabriel will be attending Brown University and studying Computer Science this fall, while Kelly will be attending Rider University and is interested in eventually studying Marine Biology.
“We are very pleased to present these scholarships to Gabriel and Kelly. They are both very deserving students,” said Michelle Brugger, New Providence Business Community spokeswoman. “We are always looking for ways to give back to the community, and these scholarships are a great way for us to say thank you to the families and kids who support us.”
“We would like to congratulate the entire Class of 2012,” said Jimmy Vardas, New Providence Business Community spokesman. “We are extremely impressed by all of the students and are proud of their accomplishments. We wish them all the best and know that they will be successful in whatever they choose to do in the future.”
The scholarships were presented during the awards ceremony at New Providence High School on June 7.
