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 two scholarships to students from Old Rochester Regional High School.
The selected students are Maxine Kellum and Samantha Ball. Maxine Kellum will attend Fairfield University and major in Nursing. She is the daughter of Melanie and Wayne Kellum. Samantha Ball will attend the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and major in Nutrition Science. She is the daughter of Faith Ball. Both students possess excellent academic achievements, have done multiple community service tasks, and have participated in several extracurricular activities.
These scholarships are funded by proceeds from our Garden Tour, which takes place on June 30, and by the “Taste of the Town,” which takes place during Harbor Days. The Mattapoisett Woman’s Club especially thanks our community for its support in these two major fund-raising events that make the scholarships possible. Congratulations to Maxine and Samantha.
