The Upper Holmesburg Civic Association last week presented two full, four-year college scholarships to graduating high school seniors during its monthly meeting at St. Dominic’s Marian Hall.

The award winners were Andrew McShea and Webster Riddick, both recent graduates of Father Judge High School. The scholarships are to Holy Family University, and the winners were chosen based on academics and community involvement.

The community scholarships are part of a 10-year, $1 million community benefits agreement among the civic association, Holy Family and NewCourtland, for redevelopment of the former Liddonfield Homes housing project. ••
