Sweet 16 at FHS Awards Nite

As is tradition, we have a photo in front of Fitchburg High on Awards Night. Mixing-it up since COVID has me reppin’ the family solo for this one!

2021 marks the 12th year and the 16th scholarship my family gives to a graduating senior at Fitchburg High. What began as beloved idea from my mom to memorialize dad after he passed in 2009 expanded again with the loss of mom 9 years later.

It’s not a lot of money, and $500 will barely cover books, but we’re thrilled to do it. Education was important to my parents and we’ll remember them forever for it. And so long as the money remains available, we’ll continue to pay it forward.

The Kenny Paul Memorial Scholarship goes to a student who achieves academic achievement and personal integrity who will attend UMass Amherst, majoring in a business or math related field.

The Elaine Paul Memorial Scholarship goes to a student who makes an impact in their community and who serves others in their chosen vocation.
