For Immediate Release

The law firm of Hoffman DiMuzio has allocated close to a half a million dollars to its “Gift of the Heart” Community Service Scholarship Foundation. Forty-one graduating seniors from Gloucester & Salem County High Schools have been selected to receive a one thousand dollar scholarship for embodying the service ideals of the program. This week, the 2016 “Gift of the Heart” Hoffman DiMuzio Community Service Foundation recipients are from Delsea Regional High School: Destini Clark and James Kelly.

Destini Clark

destini clark delsea scholarship winnerWe are all familiar with the phrase “Charity begins at home.” In Destini’s dual households, truer words were never spoken. She rotates between 2 separate households helping her siblings and completing daily chores after school. Destini believes giving your time to others is one of the best ways to broaden your perspective of the world. “It does not matter the time, the situation or the reason because there is a sense of humbleness and modesty that comes from community service activities that carrys on to the other parts your life,” said Destini Clark.

In addition to her family responsibilities, Destini volunteers in the community as a Peer Transition Leader, Youth Group Coordinator, Vacation Bible School teacher’s assistant and as the Jeeper’s Creepers manager for the annual Halloween festival held at the school.

Destini Clark has served all four years of high school as an officer in student government, currently holding the position of Senior Class President and Chapter Vice president for the National Honor Society. Additionally, Destini proudly represents 8,100 N.J. high school DECA members as the current New Jersey State President for the Distributive Education Association.

From the home front to the State of New Jersey, Destini Clark represents what the Gift of the Heart Scholarship program is all about. We thank you Destini!

James Kelly

James Kelly Delsea ScholarshipJames Kelly believes community service teaches us to be thankful. “It really makes you think about where you are in life, where you could be and what you truly should be thankful for,” said Kelly.

As a JROTC member, James helps with the annual Thanksgiving Day dinner providing free meals and clothing to those less fortunate. He and his JROTC Color Guard Team present the flag at various events. He serves as a JROTC squad leader, Platoon Sergeant and First Sergeant. James Kelly received the JROTC Superior Cadet Award in 2015 as well as the Good Citizenship Award from the Philadelphia Union League.

Since 2011, James has helped to set up, direct traffic and clean up for the Annual Ride to Remember to benefit the Gloucester County Hero Scholarship. He participated in the Clean Communities Act as a member of Delsea soccer, wrestling, band and National Honor Society cleaning up roads and other areas in the community. At the annual community day festival, he volunteers for soccer, wrestling, band and National Honor society booths throughout the day and also during their other respective service projects.

James serves as the National Honor Society Chapter President and as a Peer Mediator for the school. He plans to earn admittance to one of the nation’s top military academies in the fall. Good Luck James and thank you for your service!

Congratulations are extended to Delsea Regional High School’s Destini Clark and James Kelly, as well as to their proud family and friends! Their community service to others shows the true meaning of a Gift of the Heart!
