The Work-Family Connection has named Chatham High School senior Emily Sorrentino as the recipient of its 2016 Alumni Scholarship. Sorrentino will receive $2,000 towards her college tuition when she attends The College of New Jersey in the fall to study English and journalism.
Aurora Pipeling, founder of the organization said, “The Work-Family Connection is pleased to award a $2,000 college scholarship to one of our alumni students, Emily Sorrentino. Having attended our before and after school programs and camps, Emily feels that the Work-Family teachers have helped her to become the good, smart, and strong woman she is today. We wish you much success in creating more magic at TCNJ!”
Sorrentino’s counselor, Lisa Kool-Behr, said, “Emily has pursued a demanding curriculum of courses through most of her four years of high school. With her intense love for learning and thirst for knowledge, she has kept her standards high, and in addition has explored and performed exceptionally well in a variety of subject areas. She is a student who will be well prepared to tackle the most demanding courses at the college level, and it comes as no surprise to me that she is the recipient of this fine scholarship.”
The Work-Family Connection is an organization that provides before and after school care, kindergarten extended day programs, and summer camp opportunities for children throughout New Jersey. The scholarship opportunity is granted to a student applicant who attended The Work-Family Connection programs as a child.
