Student Spotlight: Philip Glazman
A full tuition scholarship to college is something many students dream of and only few students achieve. For New Milford High School Student Philip Glazman, this dream become a reality.
Glazman took part in and won the B. Franklin Reinauer II Free Enterprise Essay Contest.
“The essay was on the Free Market and its principles,” says Glazman, who takes great interest in economics, which made this contest perfect for him.
Winning this contest was no small feat. Glazman was granted a full tuition scholarship to Ramapo College of New Jersey, a check for $500 that will be presented to him at the Foundation for Free Enterprise Annual Luncheon, recognition in the FFFE Annual Luncheon Journal, and an engraved trophy.
One scholarship is not enough for Glazman. He says, “I plan on applying [for] more scholarships in December, but as of right now I’m not entering in any more essay contests.”
Once Glazman enrolls in Ramapo College’s program he plans on majoring in Economics and minoring in Philosophy. He hopes to go to graduate school once he finishes the undergraduate program and eventually wants to get his Ph.D in economics.
When not focused on school, Glazman takes part in the Mock Trial Club, Model UN, is the president of the Business Club, and is the Secretary for the senior class.
Mrs.Vicari, the adviser for the Business Club, has nothing but praise for Glazman.
“[Glazman] is always organized before meetings and during the meetings, he is very professional. He is a fair listener when members of the group have their own ideas.”
When asked about Glazman winning B. Franklin Reinauer II Free Enterprise Essay Contest, Mrs. Vicari said, “It was about 2 summers ago when [Glazman] was recommended for Ramapo College’s Business Camp run by the Foundation for Free Enterprise. After that is when he decided that he wanted to enter the essay contest. I didn’t doubt his abilities, he is very knowledgeable regarding business and politics.”
Glazman has a busy schedule but he has made himself a student that has earned the respect of his teachers and has made him very appealing to colleges everywhere.
