Lenore Everett, Candace “Lee” Heald, and Cindy Johnson, members of the Memorials & Celebrations Committee of the Mattapoisett Congregational Church, had the pleasure of introducing this year’s scholarship recipients during worship on Sunday, May 16 in an outdoor service on a beautiful, warm sunny day. The recipients are Margaret Berry, Ellijah Burlinson, Margaret Carroll, Ella Meninno and Rebecca Milde.
Margaret, “Maggie,” and Rebecca are graduating seniors from Old Rochester Regional High School in Mattapoisett. Ella is a senior at Bishop Stang in Dartmouth, and Elijah is a senior at Fairhaven High School. Maggie Carroll received the Dagmar Coquillette Memorial Scholarship. All of these star students are members of the Mattapoisett Congregational Church family of whom we are most proud, and each receives a $1,000 scholarship.
The service was followed by a brief reception on the lawn with cookies provided by the committee.
