Toyota Awards $1 Million in Scholarships to 100 High School Seniors - Roslyn High's Urbach Named One of Only 12 'National' Winners; Receives $20,000
Date:6/23/2009

ROSLYN HEIGHTS, N.Y., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Jourdan Urbach, a senior at Roslyn High School, is at the head of an exclusive class. Urbach was one of only 12 seniors nationwide to be named a "national" Toyota Community Scholar. That's quite an accomplishment when you consider that more than 8,000 seniors from across the country were nominated by their schools.

The Scholars program, now in its 13th year, honors the top 100 students in the U.S. who are proven leaders, both in the classroom and in the communities in which they live and serve. The winners were awarded a combined total of $1 million in college scholarships recently by Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. (TMS). The scholarships are valued at $20,000 (for national winners like Urbach) or $10,000 each, over four years, for study at a four-year college or university starting in the fall of 2009.

Since the Toyota Community Scholars program began in 1997, TMS has awarded over $14 million in scholarships to 1,300 students across the U.S.

The judges who chose the 2009 Toyota Community Scholars' class were impressed with the many volunteer projects in which Urbach has participated, particularly his founding of Children Helping Children (CHC), a musical charity foundation which raises funds through Concerts for a Cure. Urbach created Concerts for a Cure to utilize his gift as an award-winning violinist in helping to raise $1.5 million in the fight against neurological disease.

At age seven, Urbach was visiting tri-state area Intensive Care Units and neurosurgery wards performing music for children recovering from surgeries and treatments. Over the years he has traveled as an international concert violinist to perform at major concert venues including Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Hall.
