Third-generation EMS volunteer and West Amwell native Victoria Dennison of the Lambertville-New Hope Ambulance & Rescue Squad recently was awarded a $500 “cadet” scholarship for college-bound high school graduates who are junior members of EMSCNJ squads.

Dennison, 18, was president of her class at South Hunterdon Regional High School, and will be attending Drexel University in Philadephia in the fall.

“Victoria is one of six high school seniors we’ve had this year, and all of them are going to major colleges this year — three from New Hope-Solebury, and three from South Hunterdon,” explained a spokesperson for the New Hope Ambulance & Rescue Squad. “We’re very proud of them all.”

Dennison was presented with the scholarship check by Mary Claire Shiber, EMS Council of New Jersey (EMSCNJ) cadet scholarship program chairperson, and EMSCNJ President Joseph G. Walsh, Jr.

The 88-year-old nonprofit EMSCNJ represents 20,000 EMS volunteers affiliated with nearly 300 rescue squads throughout New Jersey.
