ACCNJ Awards $87,500 in Scholarships

EDISON, NJ – After two years of virtual ceremonies, ACCNJ awarded seven deserving students with scholarships in person on June 14, 2022. In the face of a global pandemic, these students have displayed commendable perseverance. To award this tenacity, ACCNJ presented students with $87,500 in scholarships.
ACCNJ has awarded scholars with nearly $700,000 since 2014. Six of the students were awarded scholarships from the ACCNJ Foundation. One of these awards was named in honor and memory of a respected industry leader, Donald R. Waters Sr., who volunteered countless hours to the Association and the construction industry.
The recipients of ACCNJ Foundation Scholarships are as follows:
● Trevor Hennebery, a graduate of West Morris Central High School, received the Donald R. Waters Sr. Memorial Scholarship and will attend the University of Maryland for Political Science and Foreign Relations.
● Megan Barlow, a graduate of New Providence High School, will attend Sacred Heart University.
● Caroline Bodnar, a graduate of Northern Highlands Regional High School, will attend Purdue University majoring in Civil Engineering.

● Reilly McGowan, a graduate of John F. Kennedy Memorial High School, will attend The College of New Jersey majoring in English and Creative Writing.
● Isabella Strumolo, a graduate of the Academy of Allied Health and Science, will attend Princeton University for Molecular Biology.
The John F. Donohoe Scholarship, also named in honor and memory of a renowned industry leader, was established to encourage students currently enrolled in a civil engineering program who seek careers in heavy construction contracting. This year, the recipient is Chisom Ndubisi from the University of Delaware.
We are so proud of these exceptional scholars and cannot wait to see what they achieve in the future. Congratulations to all the students and their families – we wish them the best of luck!
