​Agelica Lockhart

My name is Angelica Lockhart. I am going to be a Freshman in Brookdale Community College in the Fall and then transferring to Rutgers and majoring in Psychology in hopes of one day helping people with problems relating to addiction, depression, and other psychological disorders. My career goal is to be a school guidance counselor.

My story is a very unfortunate one. When I was just 10 months old my dad went to work one morning and never returned home. He was shot to death while closing the pharmacy he worked in during an attempted robbery. This tragedy has affected my brother’s, my mother’s life, and mine drastically. We had the burden of not having a father and we have been faced with financial and emotional distress.

I know education was extremely important to my dad who was a highly educated individual; he not only had a pharmacy degree but he also had a PHD of Podiatry. Knowing my dad lived his life helping others makes me want to do something like this that much more. With the help of a KCNJ, I can make my family proud and can especially honor my father.

I want to send a big thank you to The Advanced Spine Center and Kids’ Chance of New Jersey for sponsoring my scholarship. It is because of your generosity that I will be able to continue my education and achieve my goals. It certainly will reduce the financial burden on my family, especially because both my brother and I are in college now. This wonderful organization is helping me fulfill my life dream to help those in need.
