PLYMOUTH — Kimberly Fielding of New Hampton was selected as the 2013 recipient of the 3rd annual Kathy Anderson Scholarship.
Named for the late Kathy Anderson, wife of New Hampshire Electric Co-op President/CEO Fred Anderson, the scholarship was created to help a deserving New Hampshire woman who is seeking to better her life through education.
Fielding, a Co-op member residing in New Hampton, with her husband and young son, will receive $2,500 to help continue her studies at NHTI in Concord where she is finishing up her final year of college and will receive a degree in Radiologic Technology. Kimberly's career goal is to become an MRI technologist upon graduation. "She is a very motivated, dedicated and hard working student, which was not only apparent from her scholarship essay but was very clear to recognize upon meeting her in person," said Audrey Goudie, Executive Director of the NHEC Foundation also responsible for the Kathy Anderson scholarship oversight.
"Kimberly represents the best of Kathy's legacy," said Fred Anderson. "Like Kathy, she's a lifelong learner who is committed to her family, her career and her education. It's clear to see why she was the selected by our awards committee. We wish her all the best as she works towards her degree."
The Kathy Anderson scholarship was established in 2011 and awards one $2,500 scholarship annually to a non-traditional female learner over the age of 25 who is a US citizen, resident of NH and is a NH Electric Co-op member. The candidate must be enrolled at least part-time in an undergraduate program.
