    Carlisle, Pa. - Jordan Haferbier, a senior at West Milford High School, has been awarded a John Montgomery Scholarship from Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pa. Jordan is the daughter of Dawn Hailes of West Milford. The John Montgomery Scholarship is awarded to first-year student applicants to Dickinson College in recognition of superior academic achievement, community activities, and leadership in high school. It is renewable for three additional years of resident study at Dickinson or an affiliated academic-year study abroad program. The scholarship is named for John Montgomery, a strong advocate of Dickinson College and active trustee, who served the college tirelessly until his death in 1808. In September 1783, six days after the Treaty of Paris was signed, Dickinson became the first college chartered in the newly recognized nation. Dickinson College is home to approximately 2,300 students from all over the nation and the world. The college’s cross-disciplinary, active approach to learning has led to strengths in international education, the natural and mathematical sciences, environmental studies, the arts and pre-professional preparation. The curriculum is further enriched by internships, community service and involvement, and cooperative student-faculty research, publishing and fieldwork.
