Awarded Smart Start Scholarship

Awarded Smart Start Scholarship

Far Rockaway High School student Abisoye Oloruntoba was recently awarded the J. P. Morgan Chase & Co. Smart Start Scholarship. This scholarship award consists of a full scholarship, including books, which he will use at Poly Technical University in September, where he will be majoring in computer science. Abisoye will work part time for Chase Manhattan Bank beginning this summer in the Technology Department. Abisoye came to the United States five years ago from Nigeria and says that "all the hard work and desire paid off" by winning this scholarship. He will be honored at a J. P. Morgan Chase & Co. Welcome Dinner next month, which he will attend with his mother who is "on cloud nine" because of her son’s achievements.
