WORCESTER, Mass.—Hudson School Alumnus Corey Bernstein (’13), of Millburn, NJ, enrolled at Clark University this fall as a Making A Difference Scholar, one of five entering students to be awarded this Clark scholarship for outstanding commitment to, and leadership in community service activities.
As a Hudson School, Bernstein was a strong advocate for LGBT youth and anti-bullying programs, which extended to the state level. While in high school, he was the president of the Gay Straight Alliance and developed an anti-bullying program for grades 5 through 8.
His leadership at school led to his involvement with Garden State Equality, where he became a board member (the youngest in the organization’s history) and then the Youth Caucus co-chair. As a member of this group, Bernstein testified for the New Jersey Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act. He also was on the student leadership team of the Central NJ Chapter of GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network).
In addition to his LGBT/anti-bullying advocacy, Bernstein was a volunteer EMT.
Bernstein said he chose to attend Clark University because he was drawn to its “tight-knit campus community” and the school’s commitment to working with the greater Worcester community, where he is ready to continue his work as a leader and an activist.
Bernstein is a 2013 graduate of The Hudson School in Hoboken, NJ.
The Making A Difference Scholarship is a four-year scholarship which includes a taxable stipend, and housing allowance to support an optional summer project that students may undertake in Worcester during the summer following their sophomore or junior year.
Clark University has a long-standing commitment to making significant contributions to the solution of societal problems. Faculty members conduct research and influence policies that improve social and economic conditions of people all over the world. A large percentage of Clark students help better the lives of hundreds of local residents through their involvement in a wide variety of service projects.
We congratulate Corey on his achievement.
