CSF Scholars Win High School Scholarships

It’s that time of year again when our neighbors, Friends of Nick (FON), host their awards ceremonies to announce the winners of the coveted four-year high school scholarships. This year was also extra special because CSF President Darla Romfo spoke about her experience as a FON essay reader.

Friends of Nick is a character-building program created in memory of Nicholas C. Forstmann (brother of CSF co-founder, Theodore J. Forstmann). Many CSF Scholars in New York City attend the FON workshops, and apply for their scholarship through an essay-based contest. Students write about their experience with the program and what they have learned about character. Every year we are eager to find out if any of the CSF Scholars will win!

This year two CSF Scholars were proud recipients of the Friends of Nick Award. Congratulations to Thomas and Isaac!

  • Thomas F. from Mt. Carmel-Holy Rosary School: Thomas has been a CSF Scholar since 2005 and will be attending Xavier High School in the fall.
  • Isaac L. from Incarnation School: Isaac has been a CSF Scholar since 2008 and will be attending All Hallows High School.

We are extremely proud of all the students and parents who participated! The ceremonies were insightful and heart-warming, and we are sure that Nick Forstmann would be proud.
