ADP Announces Inaugural Class of Henry Taub Scholars
Company Expands Corporate Scholarship Program In Memory of ADP Founder’s Commitment to Education
ROSELAND, N.J. – July 24, 2012 – ADP® today announced the five members of the inaugural class of Henry Taub Scholars, a newly established college scholarship program, recognizing outstanding academic achievement and honoring the company’s late founder Henry Taub’s deeply held belief in the importance of higher education.
An expansion of ADP’s current scholarship program, the Henry Taub Scholars is open to ADP associate family members who are pursuing an undergraduate college education and awards up to $20,000 in annual financial assistance for tuition and books. The 2012 Henry Taub Scholars are Anar Bata (Brea, CA), Mollie Berkowitz (Jenkintown, PA), Michael Mungiello (Livingston, NJ), Rohan Rastogi (Irvine, CA) and Karina Chornenka (Woodbridge, Ontario, Canada).
“Henry Taub strongly believed education unlocked the doors to success,” said Carlos A. Rodriguez, president and chief executive officer of ADP. “The establishment of the Henry Taub Scholars program clearly honors Henry’s unwavering view that learning empowers people, and seeks to instill this belief to five deserving children from our family of ADP associates worldwide.”
ADP enlisted the services of International Scholarship and Tuition Services, Inc. (ISTS) to identify the five Henry Taub Scholar finalists based on a range of criteria including: academic achievements, extracurricular activities and community involvement, leadership roles, and an essay. The Henry Taub Scholars is a new addition to ADP’s broader, ongoing scholarship program through the ADP Foundation, which has provided millions of dollars in scholarships to hundreds of children of ADP associates over the last 40 years.
“The ADP Foundation works to help enhance lives, and one of the most important focal points involves assisting the children of our associates pursue their dreams with academic scholarships.
