Once again, the Melrose Knights of Columbus Council 128 presented 2 $1000 scholarships to students graduating from the 8th grade from St. Mary's School. The awards were presented June 5 at the 8th grade awards ceremony. The recipients were:
• Isabella Halley, attending Pope John XXIII High School
• Chris Mico, attending Arlington Catholic High School
The scholarship recipients are selected by the 7th and 8th grade faculty based on their academic excellence, effort, leadership and living their Catholic faith. They must be attending a Catholic high school. This year was a great year for our council since we were able to provide 2 students with a $1,000 scholarship for tuition at their chosen high school. Our success with last November's Joshua Tree concert and April's Beatlejuice concert at Memorial Hall enabled us to provide these wonderful scholarships to these very deserving students.
Congratulations to Isabella and Chris!
