The Veronica O’Neil Scholarship is given annually to a deserving high school senior or college student who has been an employee of Mendham Township. It is awarded in memory of Mrs. O’Neil, who was an active member of the Mendham Township Recreation Commission for many years. She was a longtime community organizer and volunteer. She left a legacy of expanding recreational opportunities for Mendham youth, from establishing an annual musical play at the Middle School to promoting Brookside Beach. She is fondly remembered by all who were touched by her leadership.
The fund awards a single, $500 scholarship in her name to help offset college costs for a student who exemplifies Veronica O’Neil’s spirit of community service.
Award selection is based on employment in the township and an attitude and values that reflect the community spirit exemplified by Mrs. O’Neil, plus the content of a 250-word essay submission and the recommendation of the Beach and Recreation Directors (or other township supervisors).
