Gina Torres – 2015 Hoffman DiMuzio Scholarship Winner from Gateway High School
Congratulations to Gina Torres of Gateway High School – One of the 2015 Hoffman DiMuzio Scholarship Fund Recipients
Gina Torres loves kids. After graduation, she will attend college to become a teacher. While it is true her volunteer service is numerous, two service programs grab her heart. The first is Adorable Doors, where Gina helped to decorate classroom doors and give out treats to disabled children who are trick or treating from door to door in the school.
Gina is also a strong advocate and supporter for PAWS, which is the umbrella agency known as the Philadelphia Welfare Society. Gina works on projects such as Deck The Paws and Mutt The Strut. These programs, through animal education, encourage adoption of shelter animals thereby minimizing animal euthanasia. Gina also participates in drives for blankets, food and other needed items for the animal shelters.
Gina was first introduced to PAWS through her participation in her school’s book club where she has been a member for all four years of high school. Gina is also a member of the National Honor Society and Future Educators of America.
Kyle Bright – 2015 Hoffman DiMuzio Scholarship Winner from Gateway High School
Congratulations to Kyle Bright of Gateway High School – One of the 2015 Hoffman DiMuzio Scholarship Fund Recipients
For Kyle, cancer hit close to home as he lost his very young friend Bradley in 3rd grade. Kyle’s service is tied to the memory of his friend Bradley, the local charity known as Bradley’s Buddies. Bradley’s Buddies is a nonprofit organization that assists families of children who have cancer by raising money through charitable activities.
As an avid tennis player, Kyle also volunteers six hours per week as a Quickstart Tennis Instructor at Moorestown Tennis Club. He assists young children with learning the fundamentals of tennis. Kyle also volunteers as an umpire for the Wenonah Little League. He is in his third year as a member of the National Honor Society. Kyle is also in his fourth year of participating in mock trial.
Congratulations are extended to Gina Torres and Kyle Bright as well as their proud parents, family and friends!
Next week, the Hoffman DiMuzio Community Service featured scholarship recipients will be from Glassboro High School.
