The Kevin Kamenetz Scholarship Fund Launching
August is constantly an amazing month at Central Scholarship due to the fact that we commemorate our most current group of scholarship receivers at our yearly Trainee Awards Event!
Among our most awesome minutes at the Event was granting the very first Kevin Kamenetz Scholarship to Ndeh Tadzong, a current graduate of Randallstown High School. The scholarship was developed in 2018 in memory of the late County Executive. “[It] acknowledges an impressive young adult who, like Kevin, has a strong scholastic record and showed social work,” stated Central Scholarship President Jan Moylan Wagner.
Main Scholarship’s group picked Ndeh from a swimming pool of 90 candidates from the Baltimore County Public School System. In 2016, he moved to Randallstown High School from a boarding school in Cameroon after war broke out in the West African nation. In his scholarship essay he composed, “My forefathers worked really tough to guarantee that the next generation had access to chances that they were unable to have. If not for them, I would not be where I am today.” Ndeh will get $44,000 over the next 4 years to participate in the University of Maryland Baltimore Nation (UMBC). He prepares to study engineering and pursue a profession as a physician.
We owe a lot to Larry Kamanitz and Charles Klein, who led the Committee for Kamenetz, and Kevin’s spouse, Jill, and their children Karson and Dylan for trusting us with The Kevin Kamenetz Scholarship Fund, a $915,000 scholarship endowment. The award honors Kevin’s dedication to civil service, his belief in education, and his love for his household. Each year, one brand-new Baltimore County public high school trainee will be picked to get the scholarship.
Congratulations, Ndeh, and all the best with your very first term at UMBC!
