During a June board meeting, the Bergen County section of the National Council of Jewish Women awarded six $1,000 scholarships to outstanding girls who graduated from local public high schools last month. To qualify, the recipients had to achieve academic success and display a high level of leadership and dedication in a variety of school and community activities.
Teaneck High School graduate Maya Hanan, headed for University of Maryland, and Park Ridge High School graduate Alyssa Laxer, enrolled at Northeastern University, won the Marjorie G. Arenson Memorial Scholarship. Bergen Academies graduate Erica Golubovsky, headed for Washington University, and Tenafly High School graduate Annika Seiden, about to go to Johns Hopkins University, received Zimmerman Family scholarships. Cresskill High School grad Emma Barnett, headed to Barnard College, won the Wolfeiler-Simon scholarship, and Ridgewood High School graduate Deborah Frank, about to head off to George Washington University, won the Bach scholarship.
