On June 18th, NVE Bank was pleased to host a reception at our Englewood headquarters in honor of the 10 high school seniors and 7 middle school students who received scholarships as part of the Bank’s annual student scholarship program. In attendance were the students and their family members, school officials, and senior officers and board members from NVE Bank. The scholarships are part of a community program that has been offered by the bank for the past five years, and reaffirms the commitment NVE has made to helping build the future of Bergen County.
This scholarship program awards graduating seniors chosen by their respective schools $1,000 to help alleviate some of the costs associated with achieving a higher education. Middle School recipients are awarded a $500 Savings Product, which the Bank hopes will help them begin a savings program for their own college goals. Since the inception of the program, NVE Bank has awarded over $80,000 to deserving middle grade and high school students throughout Bergen County.
It is part of NVE’s mission as a Mutual Bank to spearhead initiatives like our scholarship program that strengthen the communities where we live and work. By reinvesting financial resources back into neighborhoods, and committing personal resources through volunteerism, we strive to improve the quality of life in our communities, ensuring they remain healthy and strong.
NVE Bank President & CEO Robert Rey presented the students with their scholarships at the reception. The high school scholarship recipients included:
Humberto Marcia – Leonia High School
Jun Gyu Kim – Cresskill High School
Dana D’Esposito – Pascack Valley High School
Kathleen Dolan – Northern Valley Regional High School
Basel Bataineh – Academies at Englewood
Fernando Fernandez – Dwight Morrow High School
Gastine Bugtong – Bergenfield High School
Nichole Francisco – New Milford High School
Josh Lewis – Teaneck High School

NVE is so proud to offer this program to deserving students throughout Bergen County. Many of our past scholarship recipients have gone on to great success – and some have even come back explore careers in banking at NVE Bank!
