Diller Blind Home Awards College Scholarships

Posted November 13th 2023

The Helen L. Diller Vacation Home for Blind Children Foundation, Inc. announced the five recipients for its 2023 college scholarships. This is the second year the foundation has provided scholarships to alumni campers. The winners for this year are Treymir Forman, De’Nez Johnson, Talyn Robinson, Stefan Spohn, and Rose West. The recipients were awarded their scholarships at the Barefoot Ball fundraiser Sept. 9 at ICONA Windrift.

Scholarships are awarded in the amount of $5,000 per year for up to four years. To apply for the scholarship, applicants need to have attended the Helen L. Diller Vacation Home for Blind Children at least one summer, prove acceptance to a college, university, or training program, and complete the scholarship application.

Forman attends St. Joseph’s University and is majoring in business management. Johnson is a nursing major at Stevenson University in Pikesville, Md. Robinson is studying biomedical sciences at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Spohn attends Bucks County Community College, where he is a computer information systems major. West is majoring in political science at Swarthmore College, with a double minor in English and psychology.

“The scholarship program is a wonderful addition to our mission as a home for blind children,” said Camp Supervisor Emily Mulhern, who runs the scholarship program. “We feel so fortunate that we are able to support our alumni campers’ academic success in this way. Avalon and our community continue to significantly impact the campers who come through our doors each summer. Because of this support, we will be able to continue our scholarship program for years to come.”
