Briana Davy


VINELAND – Dr. Jill Mortensen, D.O., FAAFP, gave a gift of $10,000 to the School Counts! Scholarship Program administered by the Cumberland County Campus Educational Foundation at Rowan College of South Jersey – Cumberland Campus. The School Counts! Program is a unique scholarship created specifically for Cumberland County residents. It provides two-year tuition scholarships to RCSJ-Cumberland for students who earn four consecutive School Counts! certificates from 9 participating high schools.


“Words cannot express how thankful I am for the School Counts! scholarship. My education has always been important to me and receiving this award is very humbling. With the aid of this scholarship, I have gotten the chance to do many things such as being able to focus on my journey of achieving my future career of becoming a surgeon, and doing this by concentrating more on my school work."— Briana Davy, School Counts! Scholarship Recipient.​


School Counts! exemplifies the core values that make the community strong. The program encourages and rewards high school students for the development of skills necessary for college success: punctuality, discipline, hard work, and motivation to achieve goals. In order to earn a School Counts! certificate in each year of high school, a student must:

  • maintain a 95% or better attendance record;
  • achieve a higher-than-average GPA;
  • successfully complete Algebra I; and
  • be scheduled to graduate from high school on time.

"I'm a very strong supporter of education for our local students. I know higher education will broaden the possibilities for our young population and is also a key to success and growth for our whole community. I know our college plays a huge role in this community and I am happy to be a part of the success story of these ambitious students." –Dr. Jill Mortensen, D.O., FAAFP, Cumberland Family Medicine Associates
