ISELIN — Priya Mukherjee of Iselin is one of 12 New York area regional winners in the Kohl’s Department Stores’ Kohl’s Cares® Scholarship Program.
Mukherjee, 12, was chosen from more than 37,000 nominees nationwide to receive a $1,000 scholarship for post-secondary education.
“Kohl’s has rewarded thousands of amazing kids through the Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program…,” said Julie Gardner, Kohl’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer. “From feeding the homeless at a local shelter, collecting goods for the less fortunate or volunteering time at a community garden, these kids are making a huge impact on communities nationwide. We are inspired by their stories and are thrilled to recognize their service.”
Mukherjee co-founded the nonprofit organization Dance for Life USA to generate cancer awareness and has raised $3,000 for cancer research.
