For over 60 years The Mattapoisett Woman’s Club has been striving to help young people in their educational pursuits. This year the Club is happy to award three scholarships to students from Old Rochester Regional High School and one scholarship to a student from Bishop Stang High School. The selected students are: Mikayla Florio, daughter of Ann Marie and Michael Florio. Mikayla will attend UMass Dartmouth in the fall pursuing nursing; Walker Fuchs, son of Lee Heald and Bill Fuchs. Walker will attend Wheaton College and aspires for a career in medicine; Theodore Kissabian, son of Laurie and Jay Kissabian. Theodore will be attending St. Joseph’s University’s Haub Business School in Philadelphia; Heidi Schneider, daughter of Lynda and N. Douglas Schneider. Heidi will attend Norwich University and is looking forward to a career in medicine with a foreign language background. All four students possess excellent academic achievements, have done multiple community service tasks, and have participated in sports, music, and extra curricular activities.
The Mattapoisett Woman’s Club especially thanks the community for its support of our Garden Tour and “Taste of the Town” (during Harbor Days). These fund raising activities make our scholarships possible. Congratulations to Mikayla Florio, Walker Fuchs, Theodore Kissabian, and Heidi Schneider!
