This scholarship is in honor of the precious memory of Mrs. Geneva Johnson, who birthed and nurtured 13 children whom all attended the New Brunswick Public Schools and graduated from New Brunswick High School. In special tribute to Mrs. Johnson’s love and unyielding commitment to the growth, development and education of her 13 children, a $1,300.00 scholarship (representing $100.00 for each of her children) is being offered to a deserving New Brunswick High School or New Brunswick Health Sciences Technology High School graduating senior who will attend a four-year college beginning in the Fall 2016.  In addition, this $1,300.00 scholarship will be awarded to a deserving student who has academic and career promise, and personifies the intrinsic qualities of the late Mrs. Geneva Johnson: strong values, determination and perseverance.
