Hostos Student Madeline Santana Receives Auxiliary Police Officer Eugene Marshalik Scholarship

Tuesday, December 6, 2011 (Bronx, NY)- Hostos Student and Auxiliary Police Officer for the 50thPrecinct, Madeline Santana, received the Eugene Marshalik Scholarship during the Auxiliary Police Longevity Service and Awards Ceremony held on Tuesday, November 15, 2011 at the New York City Police Department at One Police Plaza.

Ms. Santana is a student in the Office Technology Program of the Business Department of Hostos and the CUNY community college awardee. A.P.O. Daniel Schwartz, of the 101st Precinct, and a student at John Jay College, was the CUNY senior college recipient of the Eugene Marshalik Scholarship.

Professor Sandy Figueroa, Coordinator of the Office Technology Unit said, “I spend a lot of time making sure students are prepared with the skills necessary for success in their chosen profession.  Many times I forget that our students come to us with skills, experiences, and a life outside of Hostos.  A. P. O Madeline Santana is an example in that regard. Ms. Santana's service as an Auxiliary Police Officer in the 50th Precinct in the Northwest Bronx is commendable. She is a wife, a mother, and student at Hostos Community College who risks her life for the citizens of New York and especially the Bronx. Santana goes the extra mile by opening her mind to new experiences as she prepares to become a medical office manager. For her to win a Eugene Marshalik Memorial Scholarship Award is a wonderful honor, one that   exemplifies the spirit of Hostos Community College--service and learning.”
About the Auxiliary Police Officer Eugene Marshalik Scholarship

Auxiliary Police Officers Eugene Marshalik and Nicholas Pekearo were gunned down on a Greenwhich Village Street on March 14, 2007 chasing down a deranged criminal who had just killed a local restaurant worker.
