Piscataway, NJ - Clifford Stueck representing the Wardlaw-Hartridge high school received a continuing scholarship of $6,625 from the Adele DeLeeuw Scholarship Fund at a dinner recently held at the Spain Inn in Piscataway.
An additional twenty-two students from area high schools received scholarships totaling $46,375 from the Fund.
The scholarships are financed by a bequest from Adele DeLeeuw, longtime Plainfield resident, author of 75 books, journalist and arts activist. The Rotary Club of the Plainfields (Plainfield, North Plainfield and South Plainfield) administers the Adele DeLeeuw Scholarship Fund and is one of four Rotary clubs that provide scholarships from the Fund to students in their communities who pursue a course of study in poetry, art, journalism, writing or engineering.
Fifty-three thousand dollars was distributed this year to twenty-three area students by the Fund, a fund of the Plainfield Foundation. This year’s awards bring the Fund’s twenty-four year total distribution to over 1.4 million dollars.
