SCHOLARSHIPS EDUCATION CAMARADERIE NETWORKING
The Committee Chair, Kathleen Hutchins, and Danuta Buzdygan, Beverly Kestenis, and Janet Reiche, interviewed 34 young women from The Hun School (6), Princeton Day School (7), Princeton High School (19), and Stuart Country Day School (2). The Committee awarded college scholarships to ten young women: two from Princeton Day School, two from the Hun School, and six from Princeton High School.
The Florence Bell Hillier Award went to Rebecca Pankove of The Hun School; the Mary Bruce Updike Award went to Cindy Guzman of Princeton High School; the Harriett Peterson Book Award/Women’s College Club Scholarship went to Rebecca Freda of Princeton High School; and the Eleanore LeNoble DeYoung Memorial Award went to Isobel Nass of Princeton High School. The following six Women’s College Club Scholarships were awarded to: Naiyah Ambros of Princeton Day School, Jacquelynn Chmiel of Princeton High School, Jelani McMath of Princeton High School, Daisy Mase of Princeton Day School, Lily Razavi of The Hun School, and Melissa Urias of Princeton High school.
The Scholarships and Awards were presented to the recipients at a scholarship tea at the home of member Virginia (Ginny) Mason on Thursday, May 16th. Present were members of the club, nine of the ten recipients and their families (Melissa Urias was unable to attend), as well as Sarah Graham of Princeton Day School, Rahda Mishra and Nancy Icenhower of The Hun School, and Robert Hillier. Also present was Fred Mase, Sr., the first grandfather to attend, and Beth Ann Ogilvie Freda, former winner of a Women’s College Club Scholarship in 1982 and mother of this year’s winner Rebecca Freda. Members of the Club provided refreshments and Anika Guenther was the official photographer.
As chair of the Committee, I would like to note again that Rosemary Barratt, a current member and former President of the Club, provided the certificates and calligraphy for the award ceremony. That effort provides a great service to the Committee and the Club and is greatly appreciated. Again the Club is grateful for the generosity of Virginia Mason, our hostess.
