    Kety Machado Scholarship 2020-2021

    Kety Machado was a passionate educator who dedicated herself to her students. Mrs. Machado most cherished moments were in the New Brunswick Public Schools working with her bilingual students. She understood their struggles and challenges. Like her, they were immigrants to the United States and needed support starting over in a new country. After arriving from Cuba, Mrs. Machado was the recipient of a scholarship, which enabled her to graduate from Ashland College, Ohio. Mrs. Machado believed strongly in the importance of an education.

    The Kety Machado Scholarship will be awarded to a female senior, of Hispanic/Latin origin, in the New Brunswick High School in the district's Bilingual/ESL program. The criteria for selection are as follows:
    - The student has a 3.0 GPA or higher
    - The student has been accepted to a 4 year college and is pursuing studies in the field of mathematics/sciences/engineering
    - The student has been involved in school activities
    The recipient will receive a certificate and a check will be made to the institution of her choice.

Also, submit a letter of recommendation addressed to the Bilingual/ESL/WL Office and email it to carolina_arvelo@nbpsnj.net.
