Vogel, selected from among 25 applicants this year, was chosen based on his grades/academic achievement, activities, community involvement, leadership, and an essay. He was chosen by the Scholarship Selection Committee, comprised of Human Resources professionals in the area. This year’s judges were Regina Worthy of Trek Connect in Lumberton, N.J., Margie McLaughlin of Caliper in Princeton, N.J., and Christine Robinson of Paradigm in Voorhees.
“Once again we had an admirable field of applicants, and I know it was a very difficult choice for the judges,” says Jane Weiss, president of Perry Resources. “But they were all quite sure that Rob Vogel has what it takes to succeed in college and the ambition to maybe one day change the world for the better.”
Vogel, 18, plans to study biomedical engineering at Duke and hopes to “one day give amputees and the handicapped increased mobility.”
