Health Care Scholarship awarded to Middletown North senior

Newman Springs Dental Care has awarded Jillian Pujols the $500 scholarship reserved for a Middletown Township High School North graduating senior who is pursuing a career in health care.

Jillian will attend Drexel University in the fall where she plans to study premed. The award was presented by Dr. Mitchel Friedman of Newman Springs Dental Care on June 6 at the school’s Senior Awards Assembly, according to the dental practice.

This is the 10th year that the scholarship has been awarded.

“There were several excellent candidates who were worthy of the scholarship, Jillian’s essay was the most compelling” said Dr. Mitchel Friedman, a 1976 graduate of the township public school system. Dr. Friedman’s mother, Sheila Friedman Rubin, taught in Middletown her entire career.
