Nine young Cedar Park residents’ return to school will be a little bit easier this fall thanks to the Cedar Park Neighbors’ Gary Bronson Memorial College Scholarship Fund. In addition to scholarships for educational expenses, the students will also receive mentoring, care packages, and networking opportunities from the fund throughout the school year.
New to the Gary Bronson Memorial College Scholarship Fund are two incoming college freshmen.
Khadijah Yadulla is a 2016 graduate of Hardy Williams Mastery Charter High School attending Drexel University. Kayla Lewis is a 2016 graduate of Oldfields School, attending Widener University.
Returning scholarship recipients include:
Ruby Anderson, who is in her third year studying at Oberlin College where she is double major in Sociology and Comparative American Studies with an education minor.
Mable Bakali, who is completing her Engineering degree at Temple University.
Abdoulaye Dia, who is in his third year at Denison University where he studies Global Commerce.
Ainye Clarke, who is in her fourth year studying Psychology at Rosemont College.
Andrew Kulasegram-Wilson, who is completing his Mechanical Engineering degree at Drexel University. Danielle Little, who is completing her Communication degree at DePaul University.
