LUMBERTON — The third annual Timothy R. Long Memorial Scholarship recently was awarded to Jeankarlew Mora, a senior at Christ the King Preparatory Catholic School in Newark, N.J.

Felicia Evans Long, founder of Sweet Candy Café located in Lumberton, awarded the $1,000 scholarship on Aug. 17. The money is to provide assistance for expenses incurred during Mora’s transition from high school to college.

Jeankarlew expressed her gratitude for being awarded the scholarship during a presentation ceremony.

“Growing up, it has been very difficult for me to see my mother worry about bills. But because of the love Mr. and Mrs. Timothy Long have for education, I have been blessed with a scholarship to help me succeed academically,” Mora said. “I was also lucky enough to meet Mrs. Timothy Long where I formed an amazing bond which I will treasure for a lifetime.”

Evans Long created the scholarship in memory of her husband, Timothy R. Long, Sweet Candy Café co-founder and a 1992 graduate of Essex Catholic High School. He died on Aug. 17, 2014, in California.
