Scholarship Awarded to PHA Student
The New Jersey chapter of the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NJNAHRO) recently made two student scholarships available to students who reside in public housing. In the past, the scholarships had been for $4,000 each, this year the organization increased the amount to $8,000. One of this year’s two recipients was our very own Bri’Asia Combs of Vreeland Village. Ms. Combs was an exemplary student, graduating with a 3.9 G.P.A., as well as receiving a score of 1250 on her SATs. She is currently attending Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, North Carolina. She has been invited to the closing ceremony of the NJNAHRO conference in Atlantic City on Friday, November 8th, 2011 to be officially recognized for her achievement. We are all very proud of her, and wish her the best of luck in the future.
