MIDDLESEX COUNTY—The 200 Club of Middlesex County recently awarded scholarships to 137 college students at a ceremony at Middlesex County College. The students, who are attending colleges all over the United States, are children of police officers, firefighters and rescue personnel. The 200 Club is an organization dedicated to supporting public safety personnel.
“Members of the club want to thank them and their families for the sacrifices they make,” said Jay Ziznewski, chairman and president of the 200 Club of Middlesex County.
The club, which began in 1974, has given away thousands of scholarships over the years. This year saw the club reach $2 million in aid when Christopher Montalvo was awarded the Provident Bank Scholarship of $1,500.
