93 Students Awarded
Scholarship season was in full swing in mid-March, with over 200 applications submitted to our 38 funds. Then the stay-at-home order went into effect and staff proceeded to work from home – which presented unique
challenges for students, our scholarship team, and the committees who traditionally conduct dozens of in-person interviews and deliberation meetings to select scholarship recipients. Our Scholarship Manager, Deirdre McLoughlin, quickly responded to the challenge by setting up and facilitating 65 virtual Zoom interviews and multiple committee review meetings to select 93 high school graduates for scholarships. Award nights and high school graduations looked different for these young people this year, but gratitude for our generous donors and the scholarship funding they will be receiving for their college education is, as always, much appreciated.
