SERV Foundation Scholarship Fund recipient graduates with B.A. from Rutgers
- January 14, 2013
College students are likely to face many challenges on their journey to achieving an academic degree. But, for a student who also struggles with mental illness, these challenges are multiplied and often seem insurmountable.
One such student is Pang-Yen "Ben" H., a consumer with SERV Centers of New Jersey Central Region for nearly seven years. After 17 years of attempting a higher education and being sidelined by his illness of schizophrenia, Ben earned a bachelor's degree at the age of 34 from Rutgers University in June 2012.
