Commenting on the winners this year, Carol Condon, Foundation Director, shared that the donors of these scholarships are making a tremendous difference for students in this area. "We have such talented young people vying for these scholarships, and our local schools are to be commended for producing such talented students. It is a great feeling to be able to send this money forward to help with their tuition costs.

"It was such a pleasure to conduct personal interviews with each of these applicants. There were seven students granted interviews this year, and the scholarship committee agreed that this year's applicants were all extremely deserving."
