While Hamilton’s economy continues to yield new businesses and prominent redevelopment projects, its future potential remains even brighter thanks to the community’s high school students.

Recently, Mayor Kelly Yaede and Hamilton’s Economic Development Director Marty Flynn joined Hamilton’s Economic Development Advisory Commission to honor four outstanding local students who will pursue careers in business as part of Hamilton’s annual Business Scholarships Award Program.

This year, Steinert High School’s Kyle Gankiewicz, Nottingham’s Rommy Abouelela, Hamilton West’s Nicole Hull and Trenton Catholic Academy’s Christopher LaBelle each received a $1,000 scholarship from Hamilton’s Economic Development Advisory Commission to help support their higher education pursuits.  The recipients were chosen by their high school guidance departments out of eligible students who met the scholarship programs criteria that they be graduating seniors who will study business in college.    

“Our future remains bright thanks to our community’s high school students, who are well-represented by this year’s class of business scholarship award recipients,” says Mayor Kelly Yaede.  “I want to thank our Economic Development Advisory Commission for continuing this worthy program that helps support some of our local students on their educational paths to successful careers in business.”

The Hamilton Township Economic Development Advisory Commission (HTEDAC) is an official municipal government commission comprised of volunteers that holds many events and programs throughout the year to help support Hamilton’s efforts to support economic development across the community.  In addition to the scholarship program, the commission holds various job fairs, an annual business awards celebration and assists in other projects and initiatives.  Through sponsorships and private dollars, the Commission works to conduct such efforts without a cost to Hamilton taxpayers.  Residents can learn more about the commission by visiting HamiltonNJ.com/Business.
