2017 Scholarship Recipients
For the 31st year, your credit union is pleased to award scholarships to area high school students. This year the credit union will once again award $3500 in memory of Mr. William J. Spratt and Mr. Otis Severance. Both individuals served as founding fathers of the credit union. The Severance Scholarship was founded in 2008 as a way to recognize a Wareham resident in the credit unions home community.
Everyone has undoubtedly heard the saying, two is better than one. This saying proved true this year, as the scholarship committee could not decide between two equally qualified exemplary students. Consequently the committee voted to select co-recipients for 2017 and divide the first and a second place amount to Danielle Griffin and Haley Griffin, both from East Bridgewater High School. The committee, not knowing the applicants names, quickly determined that Danielle and Haley were twins. Later it was learned that they are identical twins. Each young lady will receive $1050 upon completion of their first college semester. A summary of all recipients is listed below:
