Mayor Janice S. Mironov, at a recent Council meeting, presented the 2019 New Jersey League of Municipalities “Louis Bay 2nd Future Municipal Leaders” $1,000 Scholarship to East Windsor Regional School District Hightstown High School senior SIMRIT GREWAL, 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 Simrit Grewal will be attending Princeton University and has also been a student member of the East Windsor Health Advisory Board.
Mayor Mironov stated, “The League of Municipalities 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 government. We are very proud of Simrit for her excellent efforts in achieving this statewide recognition, and her thoughtful observations about our local government and her ability to engage as a student.” Mayor Mironov added, “Simrit Grewal is a bright young student who understands the value and importance of being involved in the community and we are excited by her selection as a statewide winner.” Simrit Grewal will be attending Princeton University in the fall.
In a portion of her winning essay Simrit Grewal writes, “Throughout my life, my municipal government has welcomed my thoughts and fostered my growth as an active member of the community.” Her essay further notes, “Younger residents are engaged throughout the various stages of childhood and adolescence to gain a sense of their role in the township. The municipal government successfully provides a conduit through which students can discover a wealth of opportunities in public service, public policy, and political reform. I attribute my desire to serve my community to the opportunities provided to me by the East Windsor Township municipal government. Through its student engagement, my municipal government is forging the path for the future and developing the necessary skills in the leaders of tomorrow by allowing them to serve today.”
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.
