There was an air of excitement and gratitude as Community Service Scholarships were presented by the Park Slope Civic Council to four outstanding students at the final trustee meeting at the Old Stone House on Thursday evening, June 6, 2019.

The recipients of the scholarships are graduating seniors attending high schools at the John Jay Educational Complex and have exemplified a remarkable level of volunteer and community service. Each student received a $2,500.00 scholarship to assist them with their continued education.

Scholarships were awarded to Dilcia Arzu Martinez from the John Jay School for Law, Sarahi Flores Castillo from Park Slope Collegiate, HongDa Ou from the Secondary School for Journalism, and Ashley Vergara from Millennium Brooklyn High School.

Ms. Arzu Martinez will attend LaSalle University. Ms. Flores Castillo will attend the College of Staten Island. Mr. Ou will attend the New York City College of Technology. And Ms. Vergara will attend New York University.

The Community Service Scholarships are funded from the proceeds of the Civic Council’s annual food and drink tasting event, Food for Thought.

Food for Thought 2019 will be held at the Picnic House in Prospect Park on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 from 6:30-9:00pm. Please save the date. It is truly a wonderful event and benefits our hard- working and deserving local students.
