Two Community-Involved, Philadelphia-area Students Receive $8,000 Scholarships
Date:6/3/2013

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) June 03, 2013

The R.W. Sorrell Scholarship Fund, a local fund started by former Urban League of Philadelphia president, Robert W. Sorrell, recently held a reception in the executive offices of Independence Blue Cross, here. Cheltenham High School 12th-grader Chase Roberts, and Jasmine Jervis, an Abington High School 12th-grader, were each awarded an $8,000 college scholarship, $2,000 for each of four years. Additionally, both scholarship winners will be given a paid internship with Independence Blue Cross, the region’s leading health insurer and one of the largest private-sector employers in the city of Philadelphia.

Given the combined academic and community involvement criteria of the R.W. Sorrell Scholarship, both Mr. Roberts and Ms. Jarvis are not only very strong students, academically, but also leaders in community service. Mr. Roberts is an award-winning poet and classically trained pianist, who volunteers, twice a week, at Chestnut Hill Library. He also mentors children at science workshops held at the Franklin Institute. Ms. Jervis, a member of the National Honor Society, feeds the homeless at various shelters throughout Philadelphia, motivates young, African-American women through the organization I’m A Girl Intelligent Nobel and Educated (IMAGINE), where she currently serves as president.

Commenting on the winners, for this second year of the scholarship, Mr. Sorrell, said, “We are pleased to make a difference in the lives of those who are making exceptional strides in their communities. These students, Chase and Jasmine, freely give their time because they see the need for change, all the while, still managing to obtain outstanding grades in their respective high schools. There were many students who applied for the scholarship, and who met the requirements, but none who exemplified the qualities of natural-born leaders and change agents, as Chase and Jasmine have so remarkably
