HPU parents Caren and Jordan Waxman of Boca Raton, Florida, recently established the Waxman Difference Makers Endowed Scholarship.

By endowing this scholarship, we want to provide other students with the same support they need to succeed at HPU. We hope that this can be the difference maker in a student’s life, and they may one day become a difference maker themselves.”
