The Rockland Community Foundation and fund owner Bill Trust have announced the awarding of the Judith H. Trust Memorial Scholarship to Selena Bermejo Romero. The ceremony took place at the Clarkstown High School South Achievement Center on May 14. About 12 people were on hand to proudly celebrate Selena’s achievement, including her friends, family and teachers.
“Selena has overcome tremendous obstacles to become the incredible young woman she is today,” explained Board President Judge Bill Sherwood. “Her amazing spirit and positive attitude makes her an inspiration to us all. It is an honor to present her with the Judith Trust scholarship.”
The scholarship was established by the Trust family to honor the memory of Judith H. Trust, Coordinator of the Achievement Center for 17 years. It awards a $1,000 scholarship to a deserving Clarkstown High School South senior who has benefitted from the services and support of the school’s Achievement Center, to be used for continuing education.
