Lakeland Bank Awards $190,000 in Scholarships to 105 Students

2019 Annual Scholarship Golf Outing Scheduled for September 24

Oak Ridge, N.J., July 11, 2019 – Lakeland Bank was pleased to distribute $190,000 in scholarships to high school seniors from 73 local high schools in Bergen, Somerset, Morris, Passaic, Sussex, Ocean, Essex, Warren, and Union counties in New Jersey and Orange County, New York. The funds were raised at the 2018 Annual Scholarship Golf Outing.

“Our associates recently presented scholarships to 105 students attending high schools in the communities the Bank serves,” said Thomas Shara, president and CEO of Lakeland Bank. “It is especially rewarding to provide these scholarships, which may be a key factor in these students being able to continue their education beyond the high school level.”

The scholarships are presented to students selected by their public or private school who have demonstrated academic success and have an interest in pursuing a higher education. Lakeland congratulates the students who were selected to receive the 2019 scholarships and encourages students entering their senior year to contact the Guidance department at their school to learn how to apply for a Lakeland Bank Scholarship.

The 2019 Lakeland Bank Annual Scholarship Golf Outing will be held on Tuesday, September 24, 2019 at Crystal Springs Golf Resort in Hamburg, N.J. The goal is to raise $200,000 to support both public and private high schools in the communities Lakeland Bank serves. To learn more and register online, visit
