2014 Girls Inc. of Lynn award winners

On Thursday, April,10, 2014 five young women from Girls Inc. of Lynn were awarded at the the non-profits annual celebration luncheon.

2014 Girls Inc. National Scholars were Eseosa Asiruwa and Victoria Aboagye-Adinkra. The Scholars Program was created when Lucile Miller Wright, a long-time supporter of Girls Inc. and a pioneer aviator, made a bequest from her estate to fund scholarships expressly for young women members.

Since 1993, Girls Inc. has awarded over $3.3 million in scholarships to hundreds of high school girls. Multiple scholarships ($5,000 and $20,000) are awarded each year and may be applied to tuition and expenses at any accredited 2- or 4-year college or university. This is a private scholarship, open only to young women who are in the 11th or 12th grade and who are members of a Girls Inc. affiliate.

Girl Hero award winners Panagiota Agganis, Chioma Ogbuike and Lindsey Crowley received the distinguished awards.

This award is funded in part by the Moyer Family Scholarship Fund and was established by Joy Moyer in memory of her father and mother. The girls who are chosen best exemplify the Moyer Family determination to overcome obstacles and a strong commitment to education.

The ceremony/celebration was MC'ed by Latoyia Edwards, NECN Primetime Evening Anchor with a award given to Andrea J. Cabral, Executive Secretary of Public Safety for being a Strong, Smart and Bold Honoree during a 2 hour ceremony attended by more than 300 people from Lynn and the surrounding Boston area.
