We would like to congratulate Danica Dong, the first recipient of the MUTJ scholarship. Danica is the daughter of Mike and Jennifer Dong and recently graduated from Hopewell Senior High School. During high school, she was a member of Hopewell’s marching band and cross-country team. She also participated in National Honor Society, Student Council, volunteered as a student ambassador for the Homeless Children’s Education Fund and was class Valedictorian. Next fall, Danica will be attending MIT majoring in Chemical Engineering where she hopes to engineer a new, more affordable treatment for the proliferation of deformed cells, essentially creating cheaper drug alternatives for cancer patients.
Thank you to all of our scholarship applicants and congratulations on graduation. We wish you the best of luck next year and in your future endeavors.
