The College of Westchester Charitable Foundation (CWCF) hosted its 11th Annual Scholarship Fundraiser, honoring 10 scholarship recipients.

“The CW community is very grateful to all who donate and for these two new grants. We pride ourselves on remaining focused on students and their desire to graduate and obtain or improve upon their current employment situation. The funds raised through the CWCF allow the CW Scholars to supplement their available funds with scholarships thanks to the generosity of so many,” said Mary Beth Del Balzo, President of The College of Westchester.

The 2019 CWCF Scholarship recipients include, Durwin Daley (Mayor Joseph Delfino Scholarship), Nicole Kotash (Dr. William R. Papallo Scholarship), Ana Gomez (Jeanne Sutkowski Scholarship), Samantha Granieri (The Doris Metzger Miller Datakey Scholarship), Alex Rodriguez (The Radford Quesada Networking Scholarship), Kahleel Neil (CWCF Art Contest Scholarship), Lauren DeAngelis (Sterling National Bank), Betsy Roman-Jaquez and Aneika Daniel (Entergy Powers Diversity Scholarship), and Ashley Marcelino (CWCF Honors Scholarship). “Your education – as you have already discovered, is the key to unlocking so many doors – and I urge you to recognize that it has not just been about acquiring knowledge, but about how to learn. I have no doubt that regardless of your field or the role you seek within it – it will serve you well to remember that learning – not just new things, but new ways of thinking – is a life-long venture,” said Ted Miller, event emcee, Co-President of the CWCF and Founder & President of DataKey Consulting.
