Hamilton’s Economic Development Commission Provides Scholarships to Local High School Students Pursuing College Business Degrees

While the Hamilton Township Economic Development Advisory Commission (HTEDAC) works with Township officials to support continued progress in the local economy, it has also continued one annual tradition of giving back to our hometown’s future business leaders.

The commission recently joined with Mayor Kelly Yaede and Hamilton’s Economic Development Director, Marty Flynn, to present five Hamilton high school students with scholarships that will help support their pursuit of business degrees in college.

With proceeds from its annual events, the HTEDAC was able to provide $1,000 scholarships to recipients from the four high schools located in Hamilton.  The students were selected by each schools’ guidance departments from among their schools’ graduating seniors who are planning to study a business-related field in college.   

This year, Steinert High School’s Kyle Calamia, Nottingham’s Gabriel Samolchuck, Hamilton West’s Alyssa Maslowski received full scholarships, while Trenton Catholic Academy students Kensy Blaise and Felissah Boyer, as co-recipients from their school, received partial scholarships.    

“This year’s class of scholarship award recipients is another fine example of the outstanding high school students across our community who are planning to pursue futures in business,” says Mayor Kelly Yaede.  “I want to also recognize and thank the dedicated members of our Economic Development Advisory Commission for continuing this annual scholarship program.”

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.
