Better together

A need to connect with different age groups is woven into our genes.

One of the singular pleasures of the Agawam Rotary Club is the opportunity to provide scholarships to deserving graduates.
 
The Ray and Reita McCarroll scholarship is named for Ray McCarroll, one of the charter members of the Agawam Rotary Club and his wife Reita.  They were West Springfield residents and Ray was the manager of the Food Mart grocery store in Agawam.  Reita passed away in 2009 and a generous donation was made by her family after her passing in memory of the McCarrolls. 
 
The scholarship is presented to students who exemplify Rotary’s principal motto, “Service Above Self”, show leadership abilities and a desire to make a contribution in their home, school, community and country.
 
In recognition of the McCarrolls’ commitment to both communities, the Agawam Rotary Club awards one scholarship each to a student from West Springfield and a student from Agawam.
 
This year’s West Springfield recipient was Lauren Bolduc.  Her school activities included student government, Key Club, 3 sport (soccer, basketball, and track) athlete, and was the President of the History Club.  Her community involvement included Student Ambassador at Baystate Hospital, Teen Board member for the Ronald McDonald House, and active in Unify Against Bullying.  She will be pursuing a nursing degree at UMass Amherst.
 
The Agawam recipient was Mason Wesley.  Mason’s school activities included Science
Club, student government and Chief of the AHS Chiefs (School Culture Improvement).  A track athlete, he gave back to the community as a music therapist (pianist) at Baystate Medical and as a volunteer for the summer youth track and field program.  He will be attending either Villanova or George Washington University.
 
The Agawam Rotary Club congratulates both of these outstanding young people.
