Joan M. Bornheimer Memorial Scholarship
It is with great pleasure that the Bilingual Department announces the recipient of the 2019 Joan M. Bornheimer Memorial Scholarship, Eros Barahona. Together with the support of the New Brunswick Education Foundation (NBEF), we successfully accomplished our goal of the $1,000 scholarship, along with an HP Laptop! Furthermore, the NBEF will continue to mentor the student throughout his higher education journey.YOUR contributions, via the 2018 Winter Wishes Basket Raffle and the Dress Down Fundraiser made it ALL possible. A special THANK YOU to our community partners for their generous contributions as they were very much appreciated. Thank you ALL for your continued support of our New Brunswick Students.
