Niagara Hospice awarded three local students with $1,000 scholarships in recognition of their academic achievements and ability to make a difference in their communities.
“We are pleased to continue our tradition of providing scholarship funds to support the academic advancement of local college students whose parents work with our affiliated nonprofit organizations,” said John Lomeo, President and CEO of Niagara Hospice. “We were very impressed with the achievements of this year’s five scholarship recipients, and we wish them lasting success as they work toward their degrees.”
The Making a Difference Scholarship was awarded to Kari Claycomb, Matthew O’Donnell and Lisa Boisvert. This scholarship is presented to students who represent outstanding academic, technical or vocational potential and demonstrate dedicated community service and a high degree of personal accomplishment.
The scholarship committee evaluated all applicants on academic record, class rank, leadership record, employment performance, community services and volunteer activities, and personal achievements.
