Mayor Janice S. Mironov, at the July 25 Council meeting, presented the 2017 New Jersey League of Municipalities “Louis Bay 2nd Future Municipal Leaders” $1,000 Scholarship to East Windsor Regional School District Hightstown High School 2017 graduate SIDDHI SHAH, who was one of the three statewide winners.  The New Jersey League of Municipalities statewide scholarship competition centers on the theme "What My Municipal Government Does Best" and seeks to advance the virtues of elected and volunteer members of the community, while raising awareness of municipal government in general.  East Windsor resident Siddhi Shah will be attending Rutgers University.   

Mayor Mironov stated, “The League-sponsored Louis Bay 2nd Future Municipal Leaders Scholarship Competition provides a unique opportunity for area high school students to demonstrate an interest in their local elected officials and municipal operations.  We are very proud of Siddhi for her excellent efforts in achieving this statewide recognition, and her thoughtful observations about our local government.”  Mayor Mironov added, “Siddhi Shah is a bright young student who understands the value and importance of being involved in the community and we are excited that this $1,000 scholarship will assist in supporting her educational goals.”

In a portion of her winning essay Siddhi Shah writes, “Mayor Mironov and her council members have remodeled and upgraded the township every year and have created not just a beautiful town, but a close-knit family through her role as a leader.  She has realized that to make a true community, the residents have to interact with the governing body and constantly work to appeal to the needs of the public.”

The New Jersey State League of Municipalities, by way of its municipalities, promotes this opportunity for three high school juniors or seniors throughout New Jersey to be awarded the $1,000 scholarship through the Future Municipal Leaders Scholarship Competition.
