Salem, NJ—June 20, 2022—In recognition of their dedication to community service, Mannington Mills has awarded “Stand on A Better World” scholarships to two New Jersey graduating seniors—Alex Giudice and Olivia Langley. This program, now in its 16th year, reflects Mannington’s unique commitment to local education. It was started by a Mannington associate, and scholarships are fully funded by donations from Salem (NJ)-based associates.
Two scholarships are offered—one to the child of a Salem-based Mannington associate, and one to a Salem County student.
“By volunteering and helping others in their community, these students are putting into action one of Mannington’s core values—‘Do the Right Thing,’” says Keith Campbell, Mannington Mills Chairman of the Board. “We’re very proud of their efforts and wish them great success.”
Alex Giudice, of Mickelton, New Jersey, is the “Mannington” category scholarship recipient. He is the son of Eileen Giudice and Vic Giudice, Mannington Sr. Director of Safety, Health and Environment. Alex is a graduate of Kingsway High School in Woolwich Township, and plans to attend Rutgers University. Inspired to give back to others after his mom’s battle with breast cancer, Alex worked to clean up and restore “The Seeds of Hope Project,” a Cancer Community Program at Cooper Medical Center. The garden is used by cancer patients and survivors to grow organic vegetables that are given to chemotherapy patients.
Olivia Langley, of Pittsgrove, New Jersey, is the “Salem County” scholarship recipient. The daughter of Jeffrey and Robin Langley, she is a graduate of A.P. Schalick High School, and plans to attend the University of Delaware. Throughout high school, Olivia was involved in the Teen Prevention Alliance, an organization that educates elementary school kids about mental health, and the importance of being drug and alcohol free. She also mentored second graders at Pittsgrove’s Camp Pride, helping them build social and emotional skills, and volunteered in Salem County for road clean-ups, holiday food drives, blood drives, tutoring, and toy drives.
