Back to School for the Gary Bronson Memorial College Scholarship Recipients!

Cedar Park Scholarship

2015 Gary Bronson Memorial College Scholarship Fund Recipients with CPN Scholarship Committee Members

Six young Cedar Park residents’ return to school will be a little bit easier this fall thanks to the Cedar Park Neighbors’ Gary Bronson Memorial College Scholarship Fund.  In addition to scholarships of over $1,000 each for educational expenses, the students will also receive mentoring, care packages, and networking opportunities from the fund throughout school year.

New to the Gary Bronson Memorial College Scholarship Fund are two incoming college freshmen. Abdoulaye Dia is a 2015 graduate of the Charter High School for Architecture and Design (CHAD), and will be attending Denison University.  Dante Gibbons, also a 2015 CHAD graduate, will be attending Penn State University to study Geosciences.

Returning scholarship recipients include Ainye Clarke, who is entering her second year studying Psychology at Rosemont College.  Andrew Kulasegram-Wilson is in his third year at Drexel University where he studies Engineering.  Danielle Little attends Columbia College in Chicago, and is beginning her second year studying Arts Management with a Business and Entrepreneurship Major. Dung Nguyen is in her final year at Temple University’s School of Pharmacy.

These scholarships are possible through the generous support of the donors to the Gary Bronson Memorial College Scholarship Fundraiser.  Major sponsors of the April 2015 event were the Fleming Family Fund, Gregg & Rachel Mohrmann, Philadelphia Federal Credit Union, and Fred Wolfe Jr.  We thank those sponsors and all who contributed to making the event a huge success.

Cedar Park Neighbors is extremely proud of these active and dynamic students and their accomplishments. Please join us in congratulating these young members of our Cedar Park community, and wishing them the best in their studies.
