The Camden Rotary Club has acknowledged the accomplishments of 16 Camden Hills Regional High School graduates with scholarship awards totaling $44,000.

All of the scholarships will apply to further education — either vocational training or attendance at a college or university.

Ten outstanding students received awards of $2,000: Emma Berryman-Moore, Anne Brady, Erin Doran, Hannah Corney, Addie Drinkwater, Anna Gambell, Grace Harrison, Aaron Nolan, Bizuwork Pree, and Kaitlin York.

This year’s scholarships also include six specialized awards of $4,000:

  • Outstanding Global Citizen Scholarship – Maya Sosland
  • Outstanding Community Service Scholarship – Matt Clark
  • Outstanding Visual and Performing Arts Scholarship – Jacob Corney
  • Outstanding Science and Technology Scholarship – Crockett Lalor
  • Outstanding Humanities Scholarship – Keira Haining
  • Outstanding Two-Year Technology, Trade, Apprenticeship Scholarship – Molly Turner Watts

The Camden Rotary Club’s scholarship program began in 1954 with the award of $100 to a single Camden High School graduate. Since 1994, the program has been funded largely by the Edith H. McCobb Trust in memory of her husband, Clayton R. McCobb, former president of Camden National Bank. The trust was set up for the Camden Rotary Club to help students obtain an education beyond high school.

Club members work with high school staff to identify promising students. Students receive their scholarships after successfully completing their first semester of higher education.
