Among other goals, the focal point of the KHS Alumni Association’s fundraising efforts each year is to help provide scholarships to the next generation of up-and-coming Komets as they further their educations beyond the gates of Kearny High. The KHSAA has been awarding scholarships to Kearny students for over 20 years.
In 2019, seven $1,000 scholarships were awarded to deserving seniors. The recipients were Annabella Berry, Lien Hieu Man, Mary Agashua, Jennifer Garcia Hernandez, Alizeā Inez Reyes, Uriel Nathan Geronimo and Nihilo Ibarra.
On behalf of the Alumni Association, Laurie Quitugua and Mike George attended the Senior Dinners to present the scholarship checks to the students, and Ginger Chasteene recognized the DMD recipients at their assembly.
Congratulations to the scholarship winners! Here’s hoping they succeed in their endeavors in their chosen fields. Their work has just begun.
