Marci Steinberg Is Named National Service Scholar

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 Women’s 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.

High schools and local organizations interested in next year’s National Service Scholars program may call, (202) 606-5000, Extension No. 293.

The National Service Scholars program is administered by Citizens’ Scholarship Foundation of America, Inc. (CSFA), a national non-profit student aid service organization headquartered in St. Peter, Minnesota.
