The Long Valley Junior Women’s Club (LVJWC) is proud to announce that it has awarded $10,000 in scholarships to ten graduates from the West Morris Central High School Class of 2022. LVJWC is a volunteer organization which raises funds through various fundraisers and programs including our CARE Afterschool program and our Racks Valley Boutique located in downtown Long Valley. Last year we raised over $90,000 to allocate back into our community and into programs such as our schools, Emergency Services, our local Food Pantry, our Senior Center, Mental Health and Community Safety Programs, our Scholarship Program and so much more.
We received applications from many amazing and well-deserving students which made our work in choosing the recipients incredibly difficult. Careful consideration was given to each application. The awards were given to ten students who stood out based on dedication to their academic career, their essay submission, financial need, leadership and school involvement, but more importantly those who demonstrated a commitment to serving and giving back within their community which goes hand in hand with LVJWC’s primary mission. Approximately $95,000 in scholarships and awards were given out at the 2022 Senior Awards ceremony at West Morris Central on Thursday, June 2nd, and LVJWC was proud to have given out over 10% of the total WMC scholarship awards this year!
LVJWC Community Service Scholarships were awarded to Haley Bishop, Stephanie Bruin, Kaitlyn Donovan, Jonathan Jan, Christopher Meehan, Olivia Montuore and Bianca Rosiak. We also awarded LVJWC Juniorettes Scholarships to three active members of the Long Valley Juniorettes, which is the teenage version of the Junior Women’s Club. This year’s Juniorettes Scholarships were awarded to Margaret Layfield, Caroline Miller and Avery Schwartz.
Congratulations to all these well-deserving students who worked so hard throughout their high school career but who also made it a priority to give back to their community. We wish them well in their future endeavors and truly hope they enjoy a rewarding and successful college career!
