The Hopewell Valley Education Foundation (HVEF) awarded scholarships to four exceptional recent Hopewell Valley Central High School Class of 2019 graduates.
In recognition of their outstanding academic achievement, extracurricular leadership, and community contributions, recipients Sarah Cleveland, Isaac Osbornand, and Will Titus each received $1,000 scholarships to support their higher education goals. In addition, Raaga Singireddy won HVEF’s $1,000 Claude A.R. Kagan Memorial Scholarship.
“Receiving this scholarship from the Hopewell Valley Education Foundation was truly an honor. Not only did it aid me monetarily, but it gave me confidence for continuing my educational journey through college,” said Singireddy. “This coming fall, I will be attending Carnegie Mellon University as a Chemical and Biomedical Engineering major. I would like to thank HVEF for supporting me in my academic endeavors.”
“The Hopewell Valley Education Foundation is proud to award these scholarships each year to showcase the amazingly talented students that represent our public schools. Selected from a competitive pool of applicants, Sarah, Issac, Will, and Raaga truly distinguished themselves through their excellence in and out of the classroom, and throughout the Hopewell Valley community,” said Sara Alyea, HVEF board president. “With these awards, we are thrilled to honor their impressive accomplishments and support their higher education journeys.”
In the coming school year, HVEF will accept funding proposals for its fall 2019 and spring 2020 funding rounds to support innovative projects that strengthen teaching and learning in schools across the Hopewell Valley Regional School District. 2020 scholarships will be awarded at the end of the school year.
