Sonnie Sorsor has come a long way.

In the Fall of 2016, Sorsor will be enrolling at William Paterson University, where she plans to follow a pre-med track in order to pursue her dream of becoming a doctor in obstetrics and gynecology in the future.

Receiving a scholarship from the New Community Senior Advisory Board at its 32nd Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship Dinner marked a significant step towards helping 17-year-old Sorsor achieve her goal.

The scholarship dinner on January 15 brought together NCC residents and staff at the New Community Neighborhood Center on Hayes Street in Newark to honor King’s legacy by presenting a young person residing at NCC with a scholarship towards his or her postsecondary education.
