Ten Students Receive Hollander Scholarships
Galloway, N.J. – Ten students in the Stockton University School of Health Sciences have each received $5,000 scholarships for the 2019-20 academic year from the Hollander Memorial Scholarship Foundation.
This year’s recipients are: Emma Nelson of Manahawkin, Sarah Mavracic of Medford, and Trevor Calimer of Egg Harbor City, Nursing; Katelyn Earles of Bayville and Alexa Pritchard of Cinnaminson, Master of Science in Occupational Therapy; Suzanne Pasalano of Brick and Katie Campbell of Lanoka Harbor, Master of Science in Communication Disorders; and Nicholas Persia of Newfield, Mahogany Reevey of Lumberton and Nathan Roberts of Egg Harbor Township, Doctor of Physical Therapy.
To be eligible for the scholarships, students must be a resident of southern New Jersey, with a minimum GPA of 3.0 and be involved in ethical, leadership and extracurricular activities in Stockton's Health Science programs or community.
The Hollander Memorial Foundation was formed to perpetuate the memory and the spirit of Pauline and Adelaide Hollander by awarding educational scholarships to local students with ties to the community who are pursuing degrees in nursing or other health science professions. The foundation is associated with the Bacharach Institute for Rehabilitation in Galloway.
Roy Goldberg, executive director of the foundation, and Dr. Richard Kathrins, president and CEO of Bacharach, attended a reception honoring the recipients and thanking the donors.
“We hope you will take this scholarship and move it forward to help others in the community,” Kathrins said.
Health Sciences Dean Margaret Slusser thanked the foundation for its support of Stockton’s students. She said many students, especially those in graduate level programs, often take on substantial debt, and the scholarships are greatly appreciated.
