Annual Scholarship Event: on May 20th, ten outstanding high school students each received a $3000 scholarship from the Rotary Club Education Fund of Framingham to help pay for studies at various colleges in the region. The awards—presented by the President of the Rotary Education Fund, Framingham State University President Javier Cevallos—who is also a Framingham Rotarian—took place in the student-staffed East Room Restaurant of Keefe Technical High School. The total value of the annual scholarships given by the club since the program’s inception is now over $1 million.
Representatives of the students’ home Districts read citations from the State House of Representatives and presented them to each winner. The legislators present included Jack Patrick Lewis, Maria Robinson, and Carmine Gentile. Rep. Carolyn Dykema, who was not present, signed the citations, while Susan Nicholl, District Representative of Sen. Karen Spilka, presented separate citations to the students on behalf of Senate President Spilka.
