2019 Dave Simons Inkwell Memorial Scholarship Fund award recipient: AJ Cassetta!

The winners, Danielle Farino, AJ Cassetta & Adam Quinones with presenter Erick and Adam Kubert

On May 4 the Kubert School had their annual scholarship awards ceremony and the Inkwell Awards awarded their 10th Dave Simons Inkwell Memorial Scholarship Award with veteran core committee Erick Korpi representing our non-profit organization to AJ Cassetta. Special Inkwell ambassador, author and advocate Clifford Meth has represented us several times previously in absentia. This year he was not able to make it in so Erick assisted for his scholarships. Erick can share his experiences and details from this special event.

Thanks much to Michael Chen for the photos and info. And to Erick for taking the day to attend this event on behalf of us and the late Dave Simons and his sister Bette Simons Rock.
