Less than a week after graduating from Toms River High School South Chris Nolze has started his summer vacation with $1,000 towards his college expenses.

Chris was randomly selected from among 38 high school seniors earlier this month as the recipient of the WOBM/Gateway Toyota Student of the Week scholarship which concluded its 17th year of honoring Ocean County's top students. He received $500 each from WOBM and Gateway Toyota with the presentation made at the auto dealership's new showroom in Toms River.

Chris is a brain cancer survivor who has undergone multiple surgeries and despite missing much school time managed to graduate second in his class of over 400 students. He will
begin his college career at Ocean County College.
