EDISON — Shawn Zwonar of Edison, an engineering science student who graduated from Middlesex County College in May, received the 2010-2011 Edison Chamber of Commerce/Annamae Baerenbach Annual Business Scholarship. The award was presented at the chamber’s annual meeting June 14.
While at Middlesex, Zwonar maintained a high grade point average as well as participated in several extracurricular activities. He was active in Democracy House, the college’s service-learning program, volunteering with Elijah’s Promise soup kitchen and the Salvation Army.
“Shawn has been a true example of a mature leader, a model student and an engaged citizen,” said Phillip Vazquez, Democracy House coordinator. “Both the hunger and education teams at Democracy House respect and admire Shawn.”
Zwonar was also a member of Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for two-year colleges, where he volunteered at toy collection drives and blood drives. He was vice president of the Chemistry Environmental Club and was co-founder of Zeta Delta Finance Society, created to teach basic marketing and business skills to students.
He is planning to transfer to the University of Minnesota for his bachelor’s degree.
