CPFA awards the 2023 Lynne Witkin Scholarship to
Meryl Kurland

We are happy to announce that Meryl Kurland is the winner of the 2023 Lynne Witkin/CPFA scholarship. Meryl will begin her MSW program at Montclair State University this fall with a concentration on Children and Families. Although she began her undergraduate program in education, she quickly realized she was interested in Child Advocacy and Social Justice, and changed her major to social work. Meryl's dedication to child advocacy is evidenced by her volunteering as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) in New Jersey. We wish her all the best in this worthy pursuit.
Congratulations, Meryl!
