United States Senator Robert Menendez will be the speaker at a breakfast to fund a scholarship to be awarded to a graduating senior from Chatham. The breakfast will be held on Saturday, March 3, from 9am to 11am, at Charlie Brown’s restaurant on Southern Boulevard in Chatham.
Each year, the Democratic Scholarship Committee of the Chathams (DSCC) awards a scholarship based on a 500 word essay on a topic relating to the democratic process. This will be the sixth annual scholarship to be awarded by Chatham’s Democrats. In previous years, scholarships were awarded to:
- Michael Strand, a 2011 graduate of Chatham High School, now attending Princeton University ($1,000 scholarship)
- Brian Cook, a 2010 graduate of Chatham High School, now attending Wake Forest University ($1,000 scholarship)
- Allison Ranshous, a 2009 graduate of Chatham High School who went on to Swarthmore College ($1,000 scholarship)
- Anthony Reel, a 2008 CHS graduate attending Miami University ($500 scholarship)
- Paul Salierno, a 2007 CHS graduate who attended Franklin and Marshall College ($500 scholarship).
The March 3 breakfast will help fund this year’s and future years’ scholarships. The breakfast is open to the public and will include a complete hot and cold breakfast buffet, at a cost of $25 per adult and $15 for children under 10.
Contributions may be mailed to: DSCC, P. O. Box 583, Chatham, NJ 07928.
