Henry Moskov, a senior at Auburn High School, has been named the 2023 recipient of the Ruth and Charles B. Goldman Memorial Scholarship. He will receive $1,000 toward his first year of college studies.
Henry is the son of Karin and David Moskov. He plans to matriculate this fall at American University in Washington, D.C.
The scholarship, named in memory of two lifelong Auburnians, is designated for a graduating senior at AHS who has demonstrated a significant interest in the public affairs of the community, the nation and/or the world. This is the 16th year of the award.
Henry was recognized for his abiding interest in public affairs, including his active leadership of two service-focused organizations, the Zonta Club and the Youth to Youth Club. In a letter of recommendation, Julie Liccion, a career and technology instructor, said: “He is the type of student who does not join a club just to check it off on his resume. He actually participates in all service work, and he is enthusiastic while doing club activities. His commitment to the club’s mission is evident in planning service projects and leading them. He is an exemplary role model as a leader – he shows up to all events, activities, service work, and unites the group.”
Henry has served as president of his senior and freshman classes and as the student representative on the board of education in Auburn. He is a co-founder of the school’s chess club and has competed on the varsity tennis team.
The Goldman scholarship, which is awarded annually, is funded by family members and friends of Ruth and Charles Goldman. The scholarship has been presented at AHS since 2007.
