Cross graduate wins scholarship

City resident Jazmyn Thompson, 18, has received a $4,000 college scholarship from The Home Builders and Remodelers Association of Fairfield County. The HBRA Vision Fund Scholarship Program assists employees of member firms and their dependents who are pursuing post secondary education. Thompson’s mother, Loria Jones, works for HBRA member company Air Perfect, Inc. of Milford. The scholarships are awarded based on merit and/or financial need, HBRA said.
Thompson, a graduate of Wilbur Cross High School, is shown above receiving the scholarship from HBRA Executive Vice President and Vision Fund Director Mary Boudreau.
Thompson will attend Hampton University in Hampton, Va., this fall. She will pursue a career in nursing.
Thompson chose a career as an obstetrical nurse because she wants to work as part of a team in a post-partum unit or at a woman’s clinic, assisting women from their first prenatal visit to the time of delivery, HBRA said in a statement.
Boudreau said Thompson and scholarship recipient Kristie Peal of Stratofrd, are deserving of the scholarships.
"Kristie and Jazmyn represent the best of the Vision Fund Scholarship Program because they are scholars and humanitarians which are the qualities we seek in our candidates. On behalf of the HBRA and the Vision Fund, I am pleased to be assisting them with their college education and wish them both a successful academic career," Boudreau said in the statement.
