CORAL SPRINGS, FL - The Coral Springs Police Officers Foundation is proud to announce the recipients of their 2020 College Scholarships.
In addition to their main college scholarship program which is open to all Coral Springs residents, the Foundation added a second program in the wake of the MSD tragedy. This scholarship is exclusively for students graduating from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
Glenn Matonak, President of the Coral Springs Police Officers Foundation said: “Many Coral Springs Officers responded to MSD on February 14, 2018. It was important to us to be able to offer this scholarship.”
This year, due to restrictions from the COVID-19 pandemic, the winners could not be presented their award in person, so instead they were mailed a letter along with their scholarship award.
“It was upsetting not getting to meet these young people in person,” said Matonak. “We’re always so impressed to meet the graduates and hear about their future plans, but nonetheless we’re excited for them and the things they’ll do. These high school graduates weren’t selected just for what they did inside the classroom, but also for what they did outside the classroom – participating in extracurricular activities and being involved in numerous volunteer programs, maintaining good driving records, and staying out of trouble with the law.”
The winners of the Coral Springs Police Foundation’s college scholarship will each receive an award of $800.
The winners are: Elizabeth Young, Ryan Schroy, Kennedy Rosenberg, Hailey Capplis & Vincent Bonasera.
