September 26th, 2003
Benjamin Shimon, a sophomore at the University of Arizona, has received a $2,500 Bernard and Helen F. Soref Scholarship. The couple established the Scholars Program with a gift to the Jewish Community Foundation, the endowment development program of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation, to help students finance post-high school education.
The son of Nancy and Howard Shimon of Mequon, he was also selected for membership in Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Society.
Full-time students enrolled in accredited undergraduate programs may apply during their freshman year and be eligible for the award in their sophomore year. The scholarships are renewable annually until the student completes his/her undergraduate degree, for a maximum of four years and as long as the student maintains a 3.0 grade point average.
