Amy Wasserman Scholarship Fund
Amy Wasserman was dedicated to helping disadvantaged kids. Her life was about helping at-risk kids overcome the cultural, social and economic barriers that enclose them; and empowering them with the self-esteem to stay away from gangs and drugs, and instill belief that they had a real chance to achieve the American Dream.
She would say her greatest reward was seeing one of “her kids” obtain higher education, break the chains of poverty and build a thriving successful life.
There could be no finer tribute to her memory, nor more apt expression of her legacy than to establish a Scholarship Fund to help her former students at Nevitt Elementary School, and other kids like them, obtain a higher education as foundation for a better life.
