The Missions Committee is very pleased to announce that two Touch Another Life Scholarships were awarded this year during church service on August 3, 2014 to Victoria Sweet and Abigayle Morin. Both girls are active members of Broad Brook Congregational Church and are highly recommended for their intelligence, work ethic, and interpersonal skills.
Victoria graduated from East Windsor High School with honors and will be attending Paul Smith’s College in New York in the fall, majoring in Baking and Pastry Arts. We all know that she already has a special gift in that area after eating many of her treats during coffee hour and church suppers. Victoria earned her Bronze Award in Girl Scouts, and has participated in Band, Grange, Library activities, and Broad Brook Congregational Church worship and activities. She has earned High Honors, an Outstanding Student Award, and two separate awards recognizing her excellence and dedication to the culinary arts. She is described as “someone who is kind, hardworking, self-motivated, a good student, and who is incredibly nice to everyone she meets.”
Abigayle graduated from the Metropolitan Learning Center with honors and is attending Goodwin College, majoring in Nursing. She has been an active member of Broad Brook Congregational Church, especially serving at the church suppers. She also participated in Drama Club, Girl Scouts, and National Junior Honor Society. Her goal of working in the healthcare field is supported by her “warm demeanor, her caring personality, and her desire to improve the lives of others around her”.
