The scholarship applications were submitted, the interviews were held, and we finally announced our 2019-2020 scholarship recipients! Our students worked hard to get to this moment and for many their journey to a higher education came with obstacles. Every August, we hold our Student Awards Ceremony to celebrate the hard work, resiliency, and talent of our scholars and this year was filled with memorable moments!
The Kevin Kamenetz Scholarship Fund
We were honored to give out our first award from the Kevin Kamenetz Scholarship Fund to Baltimore County student Ndeh Tadzong. This scholarship would not have been possible without the Committee for Kamenetz and Kevin’s wife, Jill, and children Karson and Dylan.
