Eleven employees of the retirement community each received $1,500 from the Crestwood Manor John Dietz Scholarship Fund during a ceremony on July 17. The scholarship fund is funded entirely by Crestwood Manor residents and has contributed over $250,000 in scholarship awards since 2001.
The recipients are students attending Ocean County College, Stockton University, Rutgers University, Monmouth University, Florida Atlantic University and Green Mountain College:

These lucky 11 students were chosen from their 300-word essays on how their work experience has helped them grow and how the scholarship would benefit them. The resident review committee chose these 11 recipients based on their essays, job performance, attendance and attention to safety.
Appointed by the Crestwood Manor Residents Association, the John Dietz Scholarship Fund Selection Committee members include Fred Pregger, Chairman; Jean Tintle, resident; Eleanor Pierson, resident; Anne Hay, Executive Director and Tom Galan, Human Resources Director.
