First Lady Mary Pat Christie Announces Heart of a Hero Scholarship Recipients

photoAlt This past June, Mrs. Christie was excited to announce the continuation of the New Jersey Heroes Heart of a Hero Scholarship program. For the second year in a row, New Jersey Heroes partnered with Wal-Mart to offer ten scholarships for military service members to use towards their post-secondary educations. Wal-Mart’s $50,000 donation will fund ten $5,000 scholarships to put towards tuition, fees, and books at their college, university, or vocational school.

On September 12th, Mrs. Christie was excited to announce the ten recipients in the company of their friends and family members at a reception at Drumthwacket. This year’s recipients range from ages 18 to 38 and represent diverse fields of study – they will pursue degrees in everything from political science to interior design! It truly was inspiring to hear all that these men and women have accomplished. We are pleased to recognize the outstanding work of these military personnel and thank them for their service to our country. Congratulations to all of our 2013 recipients! We wish you all the best for the future.
