  • 2020 Joan M. Bornheimer Memorial Scholarship

    Posted by Andrea Fontenez on 6/26/2020

    It is with great pleasure that the Bilingual Department announces the recipient of the 2020 Joan M. Bornheimer Memorial Scholarship, Alicia Lopez Corpeno from New Brunswick Health Sciences and Technology High School. Together with the support of the New Brunswick Education Foundation (NBEF), we successfully accomplished our goal of the $1,000 scholarship, along with an HP Laptop! Furthermore, the NBEF will continue to mentor the student throughout his higher education journey.

     YOUR contributions, via the 2019-2020 Winter Wishes Basket Raffle and the Dress Down Fundraiser made it ALL possible.  A special THANK YOU to our community partners for their generous contributions as they were very much appreciated. Thank you ALL for your continued support of our New Brunswick Students.


    This year, we were fortunate to be able to provide laptops to our 2020 Joan M. Bornheimer Memorial Scholarship 1st runner-up, Lizmell Bueno from the New Brunswick High School.
