To the Editor;
As spring approaches, the Marion Scholarship Committee begins to receive applications from worthy Marion seniors heading off to college. For many of these students, financial aid becomes an important part of the equation. Most of us are aware that the cost of education has increased rather dramatically in the last few years and this is why it is more important than ever to support scholarship efforts.
Last year the Committee received eighteen applications and made the difficult decision as to whom to award the scholarship. With sufficient funds, multiple award winners will be named. Please think about the Scholarship Fund and please know that we are grateful for your help.
The Marion Scholarship Fund is supported entirely by the donations from generous Marion residents. A donation in any amount can be mailed to: Scholarship Committee, Town of Marion, 2 Spring Street, Marion, MA 02738, attention Scholarship Fund. Any help, regardless of the amount, is appreciated. Just think: if everyone in town donated one dollar we would be able to help a really large number of students!
The Marion Scholarship Committee – Steve Cook, Jessica Govoni, Julie LeFavor, Marthe Soden, Doug White
