Marci Steinberg of Scotch Plains, has been named a 1997 National Service Scholar and awarded a college scholarship of $500 by the Corporation for National Service in recognition of an outstanding record of community service.
The award matches a local scholarship of $500 provided by the Womens Club of Scotch Plains. Launched last fall by President Clinton, the National Service Scholars program challenges communities and local organizations to raise at least $500 for a junior or senior in their local high school, which the federal government then matches.
School principals select scholarship recipients.
Miss Steinberg is among 1,690 first-year scholarship winners announced by President Clinton in his recent radio address on community service.
She graduated from Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School and plans to attend the Cittone Institute.
