Deirdre Wheatley-Liss, a principal of Porzio, Bromberg & Newman, was honored by the Tri-County Scholarship Fund during its 3rd Annual Women of Achievement Awards Luncheon on Friday, March 20, 2015 at the Morris County Golf Club in Morristown, NJ.
Deirdre Wheatley-Liss joined four other outstanding women in being recognized as role models for the youth of our area through their vocations and service to others. Additional honorees included: Angela Kubisky, Executive Vice President, Membership & Marketing, Morris County Chamber of Commerce; Ramelle J. Massey, President, Massey Insurance Agency; Madeleine D. Robinson, Chief Executive Officer, LPS Industries Inc.; and Gloria Shope, Academic Supervisor for the Humanities, Pope John XXIII High School.
Funds raised through this event were utilized to support the Tri-County Scholarship Fund's Freedom Scholars Program which is offered to students throughout Northern and Central New Jersey. The Freedom Scholars program is geared to high school students of financial need as well as high academic achievement and potential. It is a four-way partnership between Tri-County, participating high schools, students and their parents or guardians. It enables these students to choose values-centered, high performing private schools. Tri-County awards scholarship slightly less than half the tuition cost and the participating school matches it dollar for dollar, thus leaving the family a minimal balance to pay towards the tuition cost. This is a commitment for the 4 year tenure in high school.
