Scholarship Recipients Meet Donors at Inaugural LuncheonMore than 75 alumni, friends of the University, and scholarship recipients attended NJCU’s inaugural Scholarship Luncheon, a campus event that enabled the high-achieving students to meet their benefactors, many for the first time.The formal program featured a performance by the NJCU Musical Theatre Workshop Touring Ensemble and remarks by Dr. Sue Henderson, NJCU president; William Y. Fellenberg, interim vice president for university advancement; Margaret Schmidt, managing editor of The Jersey Journal and benefactor of the Peter R. Weiss Memorial Endowed Scholarship; and senior Jessica Rodrigues, a recipient of the Provident Bank Foundation Endowed Scholarship.When delivering her remarks, Ms. Schmidt, Mr. Weiss’ widow, said, "Through teaching, mentoring, and scholarship, Peter believed that students could excel and he would be happy to know that NJCU is helping current students achieve their dreams.“Ms. Rodrigues recounted how she has faced financial hardship since high school when she lost her father through the recent illness of her mother. She explained, “The support from NJCU and the Provident Bank Scholarship has made a real difference in my life and helped me to complete my degree.” She expressed her heartfelt appreciation to donors who are "crucial to the existence of the scholarship program." During the 2012-2013 academic year, NJCU awarded 353 Foundation and University Scholarships, totaling more than $1.8 million.
