Elizabeth's Promise Awards was once again such an amazing night that provided 59 graduating high school seniors with over $80,000 in scholarships!!

We joined Elizabeth BOE Commissioner Diane Barbosa in each presenting a scholarship to Angelina Santana, a remarkable young lady who has overcome many obstacles in her life but hasn’t let anything stop her from working to attain her dreams.

Looking forward to you doing an amazing job at college and graduating to become a neonatal nurse and giving back to help your community!!
