The Lawrence Jaeger Award for Scholastic Achievement created by Lawrence Jaeger, a well-respected New York City Dermatologist and owner of Advanced Dermatology Associates will be presented at the awards and graduation ceremonies at Bronx Latin School and the Bronx High School for Science. Two students were selected from the ranks of top performing New York City high school seniors to receive two-hundred-and fifty dollar scholarships for outstanding overall academic performance combined with excellence in core science curriculum. Administrators, teachers, and counselors at each school took part in the award selection process, and based their determination on academic achievement, community participation and leadership qualities. The two students receiving the awards are Khady Seck from The Bronx Latin School and Jennifer Lee from Bronx High School for Science.
Lawrence Jaeger has a long affiliation with The Bronx as a successful business owner and many of his employees are residents of the New York City borough.
