2017 Gift Of The Heart – Penns Grove

Woodbury, NJ April 4, 2017
For Immediate Release

The law firm of Hoffman DiMuzio has allocated close to half a million dollars to its “Gift of the Heart” Community Scholarship Foundation. Forty-one graduating seniors from Gloucester and 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 2017 “Gift of the Heart” Hoffman DiMuzio Community Service Foundation recipients are from Penns Grove High School: Sarah Krimson and Avory Ransome.

Sarah Krimson

Sarah Krimson Scholarship 2017Living thirty minutes from her high school, Sarah Krimstone considered herself a member of two communities: Lower Alloways Creek and Penns Grove. In order to maintain her sense of community in either place, she chose to volunteer. Dedicating her time became a means to connect with both those she lived near and those she went to school with.

At Penns Grove High School, Sarah is a member of student congress, an organization comprising of 10 elected students from each grade. Student Congress is responsible for planning events, and assisting in school management. She volunteers with the Peer Leadership program and is active in the National Honor Society. Service is one of the key components of NHS; members must not only meet certain criteria to join, but maintain a standard of continuing service to be in good standing. Through these commitments, Sarah plans school events, fundraisers and community outreach programs.

In LAC, Sarah regularly volunteers to run basketball and baseball concession stands. Additionally she takes part in numerous elementary school fundraisers.

Following graduation, Sarah plans to pursue a degree in international relations and political science. Good luck in your future endeavors Sarah!

Avory Ransome

Avory Ransome Scholarship Hoffman DiMuzioWhen considering his future, Avory Ransome quotes Jackie Robinson: “A life matters little, except for the impact it has on others.” In high school, Avory has taken part in numerous leadership roles and community service projects that have no doubt benefitted his community.

As both class president and student congress president, Avory has had the opportunity to substantively contribute to the planning of activities and events for his classmates.

Additionally he’s involved in the Gifted and Talented program, the peer mediator program, and the National Honor Society. Other extracurricular activities include Varsity football, Track and Field, as well as marching, concert, and jazz band.

Avory cites the Penns Grove Blanket Bouquet Project as being one of the most meaningful community projects with which he’s been involved. With fellow volunteers and classmates, Avory helped knit blankets to be distributed to chemotherapy patients at local hospitals. His service has also included volunteering at food banks and church events.

Ultimately Avory explains: “I want to feel as though my life had an impact on the betterment of our society.” Keep up the good work!

Congratulations are extended to Sarah Krimson and Avory Ransome as well as their proud family and friends! Their community service embodies a Gift of the Heart.

Next week’s featured recipients will be from Pennsville High School.
