A six-year-old boy of Pomona was awarded a $2,000 scholarship from Kumon Math and Reading Center of New City as part of the Kumon Fall Scholarship Sweepstakes.
Six-year-old Ryan Holder of Pomona was awarded a $2,000 Kumon Tuition Scholarship from the Kumon Math and Reading Center of New City in December. Holder’s was one of 12 scholarships, totaling $24,000, presented to students throughout the Northeast as part of the Kumon Fall Scholarship Sweepstakes.

The sweepstakes, which was open to all students who visited a Kumon center and filled out an entry form, received more than 16,000 entries during the month of October.
Holder, a student at Rockland Learning Center in Pomona, was already enrolled at Kumon when he entered the sweepstakes, and he and his family will use the money to continue his education at the New City center.
“Our mission is to bring the Kumon Method of Learning to as many children as possible, and we felt that this sweepstakes gives more students the chance to commit themselves to furthering their education,” said John Marsh, general manager of the Northeast region. “The Kumon Scholarship Sweepstakes is an opportunity for new students to experience the benefits of the Kumon Math and Reading Program and for existing students to continue enriching their academic career.”
