The Sturbridge Rotary Club has been awarding scholarships to local students for the past 48 years. The first scholarship was for $500 and the amount awarded has steadily increased over the years. This year Sturbridge Rotary awarded scholarships totaling $6,000 to students at Tantasqua Regional High School. Cumulatively, Rotary is proud to have awarded over $220,000 in local scholarships.
This year’s recipients of Sturbridge Rotary Scholarships of $1,000 each are Alexis Carson, Sydney Leanna, Emma O’Coin, Ainsley Maus, Mary Godek and Jason Snyder. Additionally, Alexa Knight received the $500 “Wendall Wright Memorial Award”. Wendall was an educator and long-time supporter of Rotary.
These students will receive their funding upon successful completion of their first semester. Congratulations to all the recipients!
