Zipporah Olukanni was educated in the Teaneck Public Schools, attending Hawthorne Elementary School, Thomas Jefferson Middle School, and Teaneck High School. She served on the Student Council at THS, and also achieved the gold, silver and bronze levels of the Girl Scouts. Zipporah has been an excellent student and earned a final class rank of 70/318.
She will be attending Howard University this fall to major in political science. She wants to make a difference in the lives of the disabled, serving as a champion for people with disabilities and wants to be an active participant in government. These achievements made her an excellent choice for the 2017 LWV scholarship, which was awarded this year in memory of our longtime member and former Teaneck mayor Eleanor Kieliszek ,who recently passed away.
