To the Editor:
I’m honored to receive the Mattapoisett Town Scholarship to help further my education. The six years I’ve lived here have allowed me to grow as a member of the community both through my time as a volunteer at the Mattapoisett Town Library and through my contributions to The Wandereras a student reporter. The individual donations to this scholarship are allowing me to take the first step toward attaining a future medical degree by attending Rutgers University in New Jersey for my undergraduate education, and I hope that there will be a number of students who are able to benefit from future scholarships from Mattapoisett. Thank you for accepting me as part of your wonderful community.
Jo Caynon, Mattapoisett
