NEW YORK, June 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lawrence Jaeger Award for Scholastic Achievement created by Lawrence Jaeger, a well-respected New York City Dermatologist and owner of Advanced Dermatology Associates will be presented at the awards and graduation ceremonies at Bronx Latin School and the Bronx High School for Science. Two students were selected from the ranks of top performing New York City high school seniors to receive two-hundred-and fifty dollar scholarships for outstanding overall academic performance combined with excellence in core science curriculum. Administrators, teachers, and counselors at each school took part in the award selection process, and based their determination on academic achievement, community participation and leadership qualities. The two students receiving the awards are Khady Seck from The Bronx Latin School and Jennifer Lee from Bronx High School for Science.
Lawrence Jaeger has a long affiliation with The Bronx as a successful business owner and many of his employees are residents of the New York City borough. As the parent of two college bound students, he is acutely aware of the financial burden that families with children pursuing higher education will experience. He is optimistic that creating these awards to help defray educational costs will inspire other medical and business professionals to fund similar awards in their own local communities.
Lawrence Jaeger congratulates Khady Seck, a graduating senior at Bronx Latin High School, as the first recipient of this award for outstanding scholarship. Khady will attend SUNY Oswego as a member of the 2020 class to pursue a major in Biology. Her teachers and advisors at Bronx Latin attest to her determination to excel academically as well as her focus on service and leadership. She was inducted into the National Honor Society before her Sophomore year and served as Secretary in 11th grade. At the beginning of her Senior year was elected as National Honor Society Vice-President. Not only was she active in planning activities, fundraisers and helping to shape the future of the organization, she successfully advocated for the rights of students to volunteer in the NY Cares Program. Khady was selected as a Peer Mentor in the CFAS (College For Every Student), a mentoring program that pairs gifted students with middle students in need of guidance. Khady has exhibited tremendous growth, both personally and academically during her years at Bronx Latin. Lawrence Jaeger is proud to recognize her achievements and award her this scholarship.
The second 2016 recipient of The Lawrence Jaeger Award for Scholastic Achievement is Jennifer Lee a graduating senior at The Bronx High School for Science. Jennifer excelled during her four years at The Bronx High School for Science, not only in academics as evidenced by her stellar GPA, but as an active member of the three season track team. She is a fierce competitor in individual events like the 600 meters and also participates in several relay events. Noted for her impeccable time management skills and leadership qualities, she is quick to point out that the sense of community she derived as an integral member of the track team was essential to her performance both on and off the field. Jennifer was also an active participant at The Giving Tree, a charity she volunteered at for the past four years. Dr. Lawrence Jaeger congratulates Jennifer on her past achievements and as well as those to come when she matriculates at the University of Michigan in the fall of 2016 with plans to major in Biology with a focus on pre-med.
