  1. The winner of the Essex Chapter scholarship is: MOLLY RESTUCCIA of Westford MA
    She is a member of the graduating class of 2015 at Lowell Catholic High School, Lowell MA
    and is one of a set of triplets. Molly has decided to attend to St Michael’s College in Winooski, VT
    She will major in either French or Biology.

    Molly has worked with seniors at the Chelmsford Senior Center many times. She helps at the JV FLETCHER LIBRARY (Westford, MA) book sale. For several years, Molly has also organized, orchestrated, and lead a retreat for 7th and 8th graders attending Catholic School in Lowell. She enjoys singing, drawing and has ice skated for approximately ten years. She has competed and won medals with her synchronized ice skating team.

    Molly graduated Magna Cum Laude from Lowell Catholic High School, May 2015. She was awarded the “Semper Fidelis” Award for Musical Excellence by the United States Marine Corps League and US Marines Youth Foundation, Inc. The award states “In Recognition of Diligence, Dedication and Musical Excellence as a Performing High School Bandsman and/or Soloist”. She received this award for her work as a member of the Lowell Catholic High School A Cappella group “Off Beat”.

    Additional information about Molly is: she mentored other figure skaters on a volunteer basis for approximately 1 year. She assisted the professional skating instructors on Saturday afternoons in the “Learn to Skate” program. Molly worked with the youngest skaters who were typically between the ages of 5 years old and 8 years old. She helped the brand new skaters learn how to stroke, which involved basically marching on the ice and gliding on their skates, which taught them control and balance. Usually the professional instructor would demonstrate and she would help individual skaters on a one-on-one basis.
    Essay:
    Since I was young I had an unquenchable desire for knowledge. I am more or less the best in my family in terms of academics, sporting a 3.9 GPA in school. College is a path I wish to pursue so that I may use my many talents, such as teaching, art, communication and empathy to help others in my family, in my community, and at large. In school, I hope to earn at least a Masters Degree in a subject I both love and can apply with proficiency. Since all of my siblings will in the fall be full time freshmen, aid via scholarships of this kind is essential, as I am one of 4 children and whose parents are divorced.

    We are pleased to make this award to her and wish her the very best in all her future endeavors.

  2. Ruth E Roberts Scholarship

    The winner of the 2016 Essex Chapter scholarship is: Steven D Whitehurst, of Saugus MA.

    Steven is employed at an Insurance Agency in Boston MA and is currently in a Commercial Lines Account Manager with that agency. Steven is currently seeking the CPCU designation and has also received his AINS and his Producers License.

    Steven has turned his life around since high school and has realized that furthering his education is the best and most profitable way to go. He now takes great pride in helping and mentoring others in his profession and is an inspiration to those who know him.

    We wish him all the best in receiving his CPCU designation and we also hope that this scholarship will encourage him to continue on with his studies. We are pleased to make this award to Steven and wish the very best in all his future endeavors.
