Scholarship Night – June 11, 2021

June 12th, 2021 by

Each year, Lafayette Lodge awards scholarships to students from local high schools who are pursuing higher education. Scholarships are awarded from two Lafayette scholarship funds, the Raritan-Americus Scholarship and the Edward A. Cantor Scholarship. Raritan-Americus scholarships are awarded to students pursuing traditional degree programs, and Cantor Scholarships are presented to students pursuing higher education through vocational programs. This year, we had the honor of presenting six scholarships, four recipients of the Raritan-Americus Scholarship and two recipients of the Cantor Scholarship.

Lafayette Lodge wishes the recipients the best of luck in the pursuit of their education goals.

Always known to be a gravitating force in social settings, he and 7 of his friends decided to put their entertaining skills to test. They were to meet at a local open-mic. However, only one of his buddies showed and as the saying goes “the rest is history.”
