Almost five dozen Passaic County high school seniors, including 15 city students, received scholarships to attend Berkeley College.

Eight John F. Kennedy High School, three Passaic County Technical Institute, and two Eastside High School students received the scholarships, according to the Woodland Park-based four-year college.

A student from the Academy of Health Science received a scholarship as well. A city resident attending Dwight Morrow High School in Englewood was also a scholarship recipient, according to the college.

John F. Kennedy High School scholarship recipients were Kiara Carter, Edelyn De La Cruz, Valentin Estevez Jr., Henry Garcia, Kiara Nivar, Alicia Ortiz, Jaimarie Rivera, and Nia White.

City students from the Passaic County Technical Institute who received scholarships were Jennifer Taype, Skylynn Padilla, and Joe Vidal.

Eastside High School recipients were Sharleen Beco and Ce’Aisha Greene. Academy of Health Science senior to get a scholarship was Astrid Villanueva.

City resident Cyrane Mitchell was the Dwight Morrow High School student to get a scholarship.

“We congratulate these students who have demonstrated their ability and desire to further their achievements by pursuing a college degree with a career focus,” Michael Smith, President of Berkeley College, said. Each recipient was selected for demonstrating high level of academic achievement in high school.

The scholarship can be renewed every so long as the recipient maintains a high cumulative grade point average and is a full-time student.

“These scholarships will help them succeed,” Smith said.
