The Morris County Freeholders on July 27 presented two recent graduates from the Morris County School of Technology with college scholarships from the New Jersey Association of Counties Foundation.

The students, Milton Argueta of Morristown and Brielle Marinelli of Lake Hiawatha, each received a $500 scholarship made possible by a grant from Investors Savings Bank.

Argueta graduated from the School of Technology’s carpentry program at the Academy for Construction Arts, and will be attending Montclair State University in the fall.

Marinelli graduated from the School of Technology’s Academy for Veterinary Science and plans to attend Rutgers University.

The freeholders congratulated the students for their hard work and dedication to advancing their education and wished them well as they head to college.

The NJAC Foundation, a non-profit organization affiliated with the New Jersey Association of Counties, is committed to providing innovative educational opportunities for county vocational school and county college students.

Investors Savings Bank awarded the NJAC Foundation a grant of $14,000 for county vocational school graduates who plan to continue their education at a county or state college. The Foundation then distributed two $500 grants in each county where the bank conducts business.
