Hamilton’s Economic Development Commission Provides Scholarships to Local
High School Students Pursuing College Business Degrees
While the Hamilton Township
Economic Development Advisory Commission (HTEDAC) works with Township officials
to support continued progress in the local economy, it has also continued one
annual tradition of giving back to our hometown’s future business leaders.
The commission recently joined with
Mayor Kelly Yaede and Hamilton’s Economic Development Director, Marty Flynn, to
present five Hamilton high school students with scholarships that will help
support their pursuit of business degrees in college.
With proceeds from its annual
events, the HTEDAC was able to provide $1,000 scholarships to recipients from
the four high schools located in Hamilton.
The students were selected by each schools’ guidance departments from among
their schools’ graduating seniors who are planning to study a business-related
field in college.
This year, Steinert High School’s Kyle
Calamia, Nottingham’s Gabriel Samolchuck, Hamilton West’s Alyssa Maslowski
received full scholarships, while Trenton Catholic Academy students Kensy
Blaise and Felissah Boyer, as co-recipients from their school, received partial
“This year’s class of scholarship
award recipients is another fine example of the outstanding high school
students across our community who are planning to pursue futures in business,”
says Mayor Kelly Yaede. “I want to also
recognize and thank the dedicated members of our Economic Development Advisory
Commission for continuing this annual scholarship program.”
The Hamilton Township Economic
Development Advisory Commission (HTEDAC) is an official municipal government
commission comprised of volunteers that holds many events and programs
throughout the year to help support Hamilton’s efforts to support economic
development across the community. In
addition to the scholarship program, the commission holds various job fairs, an
annual business awards celebration and assists in other projects and
initiatives. Through sponsorships and
private dollars, the Commission works to conduct such efforts without a cost to
Hamilton taxpayers. Residents can learn
