WOODBURY NJ (June 22, 2018)(CNBNewsnet)--The recipient of the second annual Michael S. Curwin Memorial Scholarship for a student at the Rutgers University School of Law is Jonathan Grekstas.

The Curwin scholarship provides a paid summer internship for a law student interested in pursuing a career as a prosecutor.  Grekstas is serving an internship with the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office.

 The family of the late Michael S. Curwin, who served in the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office for 29 years, established a scholarship in his memory at  Rutgers Law, from which Mr. Curwin graduated in 1980. At retirement from the  GCPO as First Assistant Prosecutor in 2014, he had served longer than any assistant prosecutor in the history of the office. He passed away on 10/31/15.


In announcing the scholarship recipient,  Gloucester County Prosecutor Charles A. Fiore called Michael Curwin a “phenomenal human being” and an “awesome prosecutor.”


Audrey Curwin, Michael’s wife of 23 years, retired from the GCPO as First Assistant Prosecutor in 2016 after 27 years in the office.


In presenting the scholarship, Ms. Curwin said her husband “was dedicated to justice and to victims, but he was also very dedicated to this (Gloucester County)  office. She said it was gratifying to present the scholarship to someone who aspires to serve in the same office.


Ron and Eileen Curwin, Michael’s parents, and his brothers Jay, Gary and Steven, established the scholarship.
