ConVal

Scholarship recipients named

Due to smart investment strategies through the years and strong fundraising efforts, the ConVal Community Dollars for Scholars Board of Directors decided it was time to utilize a portion of the interest from the endowment to award a seventh scholarship to a deserving student. This additional award was given to a student whose postsecondary studies will be in the area of Science, Technology, Engineering or Math.

The ConVal Community Dollars for Scholars Board of Directors would like to introduce the 2014 scholarship recipients.

Megan Close, a resident of Peterborough. She plans to attend the University of Vermont and major in Environmental Science. She is our STEM recipient with a scholarship amount of $5,000.

ConVal Community Dollars for Scholars was established in 2006 by a group of dedicated local business and community leaders. The organization was established “to inspire hope and confidence with community support to help more students in the ConVal region to achieve their potential.” The board continues to strive to fulfill the mission of the organization as established by the original founders.

Congratulations to our 2014 scholarship recipients.
