North Bergen students awarded scholarships

NORTH BERGEN – North Bergen High School students Yisel Breton and Liscary Pacheco have been each awarded $2,000 Community Service Merit Scholarships from Hackensack Meridian Health Palisades Medical Center. The students were recently congratulated by North Bergen Mayor Nicholas J. Sacco, school leaders and hospitals executives.
The students earned the scholarships as part of the hospital’s Community Service Merit Scholarship Program that recognizes and rewards 16 high school seniors from eight local high schools who have demonstrated significant accomplishments in community service while maintaining academic success. A total of $32,000 in scholarships were awarded.
“We are delighted to provide scholarship support to these amazing young men and women who have all shown a tremendous commitment to the importance of civic engagement and giving back to our local communities,” said Bruce J. Markowitz, president of Hackensack Meridian Health Palisades Medical Center. “We know that paying for college can be challenging and we hope that this Community Service Merit Scholarship will help lessen the burden for the deserving recipients.”
The online application process was conducted in February and March. Recommendations were made by high school guidance counselors and scholarship applications were reviewed by a committee of community volunteers.
