According to Professor Michael Cain, Developmental Education and English Departments, Berkeley College School of Liberal Arts, Mr. Feliz is an ideal choice as 2018 scholarship winner. “Erick definitely plays a role in helping the Hispanic community,” said Mr. Cain. “He is also professional, has a bright future and is the type of student an instructor hopes to have. He is an asset to any academic or work environment.” This award is designed to give a scholarship on a competitive and need basis to a student with a 3.0 or higher grade point average. The student also must submit an essay that includes accomplishments, how the scholarship would help the student excel, career goals, and an interest in playing a supportive role in Hispanic business and the Hispanic community. The ceremony took place on November 30, 2018, at Maestro’s Caterers, Bronx, NY.
