The Bronx Chamber of Commerce is once again awarding partial college scholarships to high-achieving female Bronx students as part of its annual Women’s History Month Women of Distinction event series, now in its 15th year! This year’s event -- themed Valiant Women of the Vote: We Will Not Be Silenced -- will honor Hazel N. Dukes, President of the NAACP New York State Conference. Meisha Ross Porter, Bronx Executive Superintendent and newly-appointed Chancellor of the NYC Department of Education, will serve as Keynote Speaker.
While we are disappointed to again not be able to gather in person to celebrate our honoree & scholarship recipients and recognize our Chamber member sponsors, we are thrilled to be able to award partial scholarship funds to more than 20 accomplished female students from high schools around the Bronx – a new record for our scholarship program!
Scholarships were made possible through the generosity of the following sponsors: Metro Optics, Ponce Bank, Con Edison, Sandra Erickson Real Estate, The Monroe Foundation, Woodlawn Cemetery, Simone Development, Manhattan Parking Group, Orange Bank & Trust, KZA Realty, Verizon, NYC Council Member Mark Gjonaj, and an anonymous Friend of the Chamber donor.
