While working part-time, he served as captain of the swim and cross country teams, worked on several Eagle Scout projects and completed more than 60 hours of community service. He plans to major in biology.

While working part-time, she has organized both school and community activities and plans to pursue degrees in biology and pre-medicine.

In addition to earning impressive grades, each candidate submitted an original essay.

“While forging their paths and immersing themselves into their communities, our scholarship winners are working to enhance the quality of life for themselves and others,” Portsmouth Site Project Director JD Dowell said. “We are extremely proud of their accomplishments and look forward to seeing them continue to succeed.”
