Seniors Eli Osdoba and Zahava Gersten were notified yesterday that they are both recipients of Comcast's Leaders and Achievers Scholarship for 2013. According to their website, "the Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program recognizes graduating seniors who excel in the classroom and give back to their communities" and is given to students with excellent grades who also "demonstrate a strong commitment to community service and display leadership abilities through school activities or work experience." Both Zahava, who has been the star of our debate team for the last two years, and Eli, who known nationally in the Day School world for his prowess on the basketball court, have also dedicated countless hours in service of our school and our community and therefore fit that description perfectly.
Each of them will receive $1,000 to be used toward their college education which both of them will be pursuing after spending a year studying in Israel. We know this is just the beginning for both of them and we look forward to hearing about many more outstanding accomplishments in the future!
