Conant’s Tonyai awarded Fisher Cats scholarship
Conant High School student Kathareeya Tonyai of Jaffrey was awarded a 2013 Fisher Cats Foundation Scholar-Athlete Scholarship from the New Hampshire Fisher Cats and the Fisher Cats Foundation.
She was one of 12 scholarship winners of $2,500 who were recognized during an on-field ceremony before the Fisher Cats game on July 17 against the Portland Sea Dogs.
The scholarship recipients were selected based upon criteria of academic excellence, athletic achievement, and active citizenship in the community.
She was on the track and field and field hockey teams at Conant, and also served as vice president of the Student Council.
Tonyai, whose parents are from Thailand, will attend Trinity College and major in biology or biochemistry, and plans to apply to a physician assistant graduate program after she graduates.
