CAMDEN, New Jersey (WPVI) -- A group of graduating seniors from South Jersey are receiving some help for college.
Officials say 14 students from Camden Academy Charter High School were surprised with $6,500 in scholarships on Wednesday.
"This scholarship is everything to me," said Glendale Eversley, a student. "It's my future, it's the starting point of my life out of high school."
"This is going to help me so much 'cause you know college and technology are really expensive," added student Myana Sims-Vega. "So it's going to help me and my grandma out with the expenses."
Throughout the school year, students met with the foundation twice a week to focus on the college application process.
