|2008 New Jersey Devils Alumni Association Scholarship|
Each year, among the New Jersey Devils Alumni Association’s charitable endeavors, four $2,500 scholarships are provided annually to deserving high school senior hockey players. The purpose of this program is to assist in their education at the college or university of their choice. This year’s winners were Evan Einstein (Westfield), George Huber (Kinnelon), Patrick Marra (St. Joseph Regional), and Paul Ughetta (Chatham).
Additionally, the applicant must have shown a commitment to volunteer work and community service through continued participation in a variety of projects or community organizations. Community activities should reflect that the applicant is unselfishly “giving back” to society and that the applicant is motivated to serve. Each winner must be accepted for admission on a full-time matriculating basis to a two- or four-year academic program at an accredited post-secondary educational institution.
The alumni association was formed for the purposes of: bringing together former Devils’ players to develop enjoyable civic activities and charitable fund raisers;participating in worthwhile charity/community service programs; and developing means to help promote amateur hockey.
