Steffi and Tirsha awarded Meringoff Victory Prize Scholarships

May 11, 2016 - The Trustees of the Meringoff Family Foundation recently met to review the entries submitted in the first-annual Meringoff Victory Prize competition. The quality of the 40-plus essays was most impressive – and the personal stories in them were so compelling – the Trustees had a difficult task in selecting eight winners of $2,500 scholarships.  The Trustees decided to award all MVP entrants – including Tirsha Wheatly and Steffi Milfort – $500 each.  The Meringoff Family Foundation stated that “All of the essays we reviewed were a pleasure to read, and wonderful testaments to the profound impacts our grantee partners have on the youth they serve.”
