The 2018 Momentum Realty Book Scholarship was recently awarded on May 31, 2018 at the annual Senior Awards Ceremony at Herndon High School, Herndon, Virginia. This year’s recipient was Diane Cruz Alvarado. Ms. Cruz Alvarado will be attending George Mason University, Fairfax, VA, in the fall and plans to pursue a career as an Immigration Attorney.
Awarded annually to an HHS student, The Momentum Realty Book Scholarship has been helping Herndon students make the transition to college for 10 years. ‘Each year we strive to select a student who has worked extremely hard both academically and in the community and who could really benefit from some extra help to get through that first year of college,’ said Holly Weatherwax, the founder of the scholarship, ‘Diane was an excellent choice. We are excited to see how much she accomplishes.'
Ms. Weatherwax is a graduate of Herndon High School and parent of both a 2010 and 2014 HHS graduate.
Momentum Realty is a privately-held, woman-owned real estate firm in Northern Virginia, co-owned by Ms. Weatherwax and her partner, Carol A. Kearney.
