MWC Awards $10k in Scholarships

MOULTONBOROUGH — The Moultonborough Women's Club Scholarship Committee represented by Judy Ballard and Mary Whiting were present at the Moultonborough Academy's Award Night at Geneva Point on Tuesday evening May 27. Mrs. Ballard congratulated all the graduating seniors and their families and to those receiving awards.

Mrs. Ballatd went on to say "This year, we received an impressive number of applications, more than 20, and so we found it extremely difficult to decide which students should receive this year's scholarships. The main component in our selection is financial need, followed by the usual attributes: academic excellence, co-curricular activities, community service, and so on. As we did this year, we often find it helpful to consider the ability of a person to overcome adversity in life. Our scholarship committee was profoundly moved by some of the personal essays written by this year's applicants...their lives at home and school, their dreams and aspirations beyond graduation, and so forth. Many of their stories depicted extraordinary challenges faced during their lives. We were really touched and impressed by the astounding ways with which they were able to handle these sometimes-dramatic challenges, refusing to accept defeat and having the courage and determination to achieve successes."
Five students from the Moultonborough Academy were awarded the following: Brooke Burrows- $1.000. Cassidy Brennan- $2,000, Bridget Ireland- $2,000, Megan Wallace- $2,000 and Derek Rossetti- $3,000.
Scholarships have become MWC pet project and the astonishing amount given in scholarships since 1960 to 2014 has totaled $152,350.
