LINDEN – The Bayway Complex Community Advisory Panel (CAP), an organization of local community and industry representatives, recently awarded $1,000 scholarships to four distinguished scholars: Adam Staryak of Rahway High School; Daniel Niedzwiedzki of Linden High School; Ahmad Masi Abdul Zaher of Elizabeth High School Upper Academy; and Nicholas Joseph Fusco of Moore Catholic High School in Staten Island.
The Bayway CAP was formed in 1997 to facilitate a dynamic forum between local industrial companies and community members. The scholarship program is just one of the joint activities designed to promote education among local youth. Consistent with the member companies’ outreach programs and recommendations from the CAP Scholarship Committee, each of the four $1,000 scholarships were awarded to local high school seniors who will be pursuing careers in engineering or process technology.
In addition, two high school juniors, Piterson Massenat-Desir from Linden High School and Chisom Emeana from Benedictine Academy in Elizabeth, received scholarships to attend New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT)’s Pre-college Academy this summer, which also includes room and board.
The Bayway Complex CAP comprises community members from Elizabeth, Linden, Rahway, and Staten Island, as well as representatives from Cogen Technologies Linden Venture LP, ConocoPhillips Bayway Refinery, DuPont, and Infineum USA L.P, which are all located in Linden. CAP members meet seven times per year to share information on safety, health, the environment, security, emergency preparedness and response, and to improve the quality of life in local communities.
