Emotions ran high and gratitude was abundant as Volunteer and 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 7, 2018.

The recipients were all graduating seniors attending high schools at the John Jay Educational Complex and 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 Andy Tlatelpa from the Secondary School for Journalism, Ashley Hart from Millennium Brooklyn High School, Zenita Davis from the Secondary School for Law, and Emerson Gonzalez from Park Slope Collegiate.

Mr. Tlatelpa will attend St. John’s University. Ms Hart will attend New York University. Ms. Davis will attend the City College of the City University of New York. And Mr. Gonzalez will attend Brooklyn College.

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

Food for Thought 2018 will be held at the Picnic House in Prospect Park on Wednesday, October 17, 2018 from 6:30-9:00pm. Please save the date. It is truly a wonderful event and benefits our hard- working and deserving local students.
