Scheck Hillel Community School is honored to announce the 2017-18 Jaime and Raquel Gilinski Hillel Ambassadors: outstanding students who exemplify leadership and achieve in academics, extracurricular activities or service learning. They represent the school’s values, striving to reach their maximum potential as lifelong learners, and stand tall among our next generation of committed, knowledgeable leaders. The Jaime and Raquel Gilinski Hillel Ambassador Program is Scheck Hillel’s first merit-based scholarship of its kind.
While Scheck Hillel is blessed and proud to have so many talented, accomplished students, the number of Ambassadors for each year is limited. Only five of the nearly 50 students who participated in the rigorous application process were named Ambassadors. The application required students to write short essays, produce a video and formulate a resume. Finalists advanced to the second phase and also completed a panel interview. All applicants are applauded for participating in this rigorous application process.
With great appreciation for the Gilinski family,
Mazal Tov to our ninth generation of Jaime and Raquel Gilinski Hillel Ambassadors!
