Rockland, ME—The Worthington Scholarship, available to graduating seniors at Oceanside High School and Camden Hills Regional High School, was awarded to 58 students during Scholarship Nights held at each high school in early June. This is the largest number of recipients the scholarship has experienced, and they will join 65 students currently enrolled in college. Oceanside awarded the scholarship to 39 seniors, and Camden Hills recognized 19 seniors. These 58 students and their families will be honored at a send-off event, to be held on August 6 at the Samoset Resort.
The Worthington Scholarship supports graduating seniors who are enrolling at any branch of the University of Maine or Maine Community College systems, Husson University, Thomas College, or Maine Maritime Academy. The award amount is $4,000 per year, renewable for the duration of the student’s 2- or 4-year degree program. All students must complete a financial literacy course before receiving funds and are expected to communicate periodically with the Worthington Scholars Mentor, Caitlin Clark. Clark will assist students with the transition to college and be available to help students with issues that arise throughout their college and career development. The Worthington Scholars program continues to evolve and grow, and the scholarship will be expanded to include Medomak Valley High School in the ’17/’18 school year. This scholarship is administered by Maine Community Foundation.
