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 Woodbury High School: Jacynda Ahrens and John Weatherby.

Jacynda Ahrens

Jacynda Ahrens 2016 Gift Of The Heart WoodburyJacynda believes community service is integral to the overall growth of a person. She does not like to procrastinate; rather Jacynda likes to complete tasks in a timely and orderly manner. Her teachers took notice and started giving her opportunities to assist other students. As a Future Teaching teacher’s aide, Jacynda started assisting students struggling with math during her lunchtime. These students, through their hard work and instruction from Jacynda went from failing grades to getting a “B” by the end of the class.

Jacynda has also used her organizational skills to help teachers as well. Her Home Economics teacher, Mrs. Platt allowed her to assist in her class. Jacynda helped with filing, copying, prioritizing and scheduling various tasks. Word got out and soon Jacynda was helping other teachers as well. She helped Mrs. Davis with organizing her closet to allow her to access books and documents easily without searching for them. Jacynda believes the look on people’s faces you help more than makes up for the time and work put into helping others. Way to go, Jacynda!
