Raritan Valley Community College’s RVCC Foundation has announced the inaugural recipients of its three newest scholarships supporting students at Raritan Valley Community College: The Emerging Heroes Nursing Scholarship, the Evelyn S. Field Scholarship, and the Paul Robeson Scholarship. The scholarships were funded by last year’s successful “RV Lives” fundraising campaign. Emerging Heroes recipients each receive $1,000 and the Paul Robeson and Evelyn S. Field scholarship recipients each receive $2,000. The following RVCC students are the scholarships’ 2021-2022 recipients:

Emerging Heroes Nursing Scholarship: Jeanne Gabrielle Riano of Somerville: The Warren Hills Regional High School graduate is a first-year nursing student. Her goal is to become a Registered Nurse so that she can “make a difference” in health care. “During my high school career, I was involved in many volunteer opportunities such as the National Honor Society, where we raised over $10,000 for cancer research and collected food for local food shelters. I also held an officer position for a national service club called ‘GlamourGals,’ where we visited local nursing homes and spent quality time with the residents. Both experiences have shown me that strong leadership is key to success, and that is why I aspire to learn to be a great leader to those around me,” said Riano.

Ana Iraheta of Flemington: The second-year nursing student is a graduate of Hunterdon Central Regional High School. “My dream is to become a nurse. Throughout my childhood, adolescence, and early adulthood I have always had the dream of helping out people in need, people from different regions of the world. I want to able to go into work every day knowing that the knowledge I have acquired will help me impact people around the world in a positive way. This scholarship will also help me show mothers out there that it is possible to be a mom and graduate with a college education. My other dream is to be able to show my daughter that the American dream is possible to achieve,” said Iraheta.
