PASSAIC COUNTY PRESENTS SCHOLARSHIP THROUGH ITS PUBLIC HOUSING AGENCY

The Passaic County Public Housing Agency proudly announced at the Freeholder Meeting held on June 28, 2016 that two Passaic County residents were chosen as the recipients of this year’s scholarship award through the New Jersey Chapter of the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NJNAHRO).

NJNAHRO is a housing organization which promotes affordable housing throughout the state. The organization also provides several scholarships each year to students in New Jersey who wish to continue their education. The County Housing Agency is a member of this association.

A check in the amount of $4,000.00 was presented to Haledon resident Omar Muhajer. Omar graduated from Manchester Regional High School with a 3.2 GPA and will be attending Montclair State University in the fall to pursue his dream of becoming a dentist.

Appolonia Ezeanii of Bloomingdale was presented with a $1,000.00 scholarship. She is attending William Paterson University and expects to graduate in May of 2018 with a degree in both criminology and health.

According to Janice DeJohn, Executive Director of the Passaic County Public Housing Agency, “In the past, NJNAHRO specifically targeted high school seniors who are going on to college. This year, the organization also included residents who, at any stage of their life, decide to enroll in college and earn their degree. We are very proud of both Omar and Appolonia as NJNAHRO only had 4 scholarship awardees this year, and two of them are from Passaic County.”
