(TRENTON) – The Mercer County Board of Chosen Freeholders announced the names of the high school graduates selected to receive the 2013 Freeholders’ Mercer County Community College Scholarship.

Nick Sanders of Robbinsville, Kristen McGrath of East Windsor, Nicholas Sieczkowski of Hopewell and Kerwin Garcia of Lawrence attended a presentation that took place during the Freeholders’ Formal Meeting on Thursday, July 25. The freeholders were joined by Mercer’s Vice President of Academic Affairs, Dr. Donald Generals, to personally congratulate and welcome the students to the college. 

The goal of the Freeholders’ scholarship is to encourage Mercer County students to attend MCCC and provide financial assistance in their community college endeavors.  In doing so, the scholarship program issues $2,000 to high school seniors who possess a minimum GPA of 2.8 and have plans to attend MCCC in the fall. This year, the Board was able to award 12 students with scholarships. Recipients are chosen by their respective high school guidance departments.
