MBC Scholarship Winners Selected
Each year the Medway Business Council awards two scholarships to deserving graduating high school seniors who reside in Medway. Applicants must complete a short application form outlining their educational plans, expenses/financial aid, extracurricular activities, work history and SAT/ACT scores. To the application they must attach a letter of recommendation from their school principal or counselor, a letter from them explaining why they have applied and expanding upon their needs and activities, and an official transcript of their grades.
The Board of Directors recently reviewed the applications submitted for the 2016 scholarships and selected Mark Mancini and Daniel Shea as award winners.
Mark, a graduate of Xaverian Brothers High School, was selected to receive the $1000 Peter J. Kenney Memorial Award, which is presented in memory of a dynamic charter member. Mark plans to attend the University of Vermont and major in chemistry before attending law school and pursuing a career in patent law. While at Xaverian, Mark participated in a variety of sports and volunteer activities. Locally, he was a counselor at Flipside Gymnastics Summer Camp, fulfilled a senior service requirement at Teamwork Physical Therapy and participated in Relay for Life. Farther afield, Mark participated in the Xaverian Global Encounters Program in the Appalachian section of Maine and was selected as one of six U.S. students for a program at Klaipeda University Botanical Garden in Lithuania. Mark lives in Medway with his parents and younger twin brothers and works at Star Market. Congratulations on all you have accomplished so far, Mark. We look forward to hearing more from you as you embark on your next adventure.
Daniel, an MHS graduate, was selected to receive the $750 Medway Business Council Memorial Award, which is presented in memory of deceased members of the Medway Business Council. Daniel plans to attend Bentley University, where his father and several uncles went. He intends to pursue a career as a financial advisor or accountant and is deciding between a major in finance, economics or accounting. Outside of the classroom, Daniel enjoys sports and has played baseball, basketball and golf. He is very active in the St. Joseph’s high school youth group and works at Cassidy’s Clubhouse. Daniel lives in Medway with his parents and younger sister who attends MHS. His older brother attends Assumption College. After capping off his senior year with AP Scholar with Honors, we are confident Daniel will go on to achieve great things. Best of luck!
The scholarship prize will be awarded to each young man after he successfully completes his first semester. The winners will be honored at the MBC Annual Dinner Meeting in May 2017.
