To support the achievements and continuing education of the area’s top students and children of our employee-owners, Littleton Coin Company (LCC) and the Fannie Sundman Memorial Scholarship Committee recently awarded seven scholarships totaling $25,000.00.
At a company ceremony on June 5, LCC President David Sundman presented the Rena Hood/Bartlett McKinney Memorial Scholarships, established in 1986 to honor two long-time employees who were dedicated to education and community service. The two scholarships of $2,000 each are awarded annually to students who are children of LCC employees. This year’s recipients were Jacqueline LaFlam, daughter of Receptionist Cindy LaFlam of Whitefield, and Hannah Marquis, daughter of Maintenance Manager Julian Marquis of Littleton. Jacqueline is a Business Economics major at the University of Maine in Farmington with the goal of becoming a personal financial advisor. Hannah is now attending Empire Beauty School in Laconia with plans to become an esthetician and eventually a dermatologist.
At Littleton High School’s Class Night on June 6, LCC Director Jackie Fulford presented academic scholarships to the top three students of the Class of 2019. Valedictorian Nicole Piette will be studying Exercise Science at the University of New England with the goal of earning a Doctoral Degree in Physical Science. Salutatorian Joseph DePalma IV wants to major in Business Administration at Plymouth State University and then return to serve the Littleton business community. The Third Honors recipient is Sofia Mendez Sanchez, who plans to study political science at the University of Vermont with the goal of working in international business for a non-profit organization.
Also at Class Night on June 6, Milton Bratz presented two Fannie Sundman Memorial Scholarships honoring the memory of a beloved LCC founder and recognizing LHS graduates for exemplary character, integrity and commitment to community service. The two recipients are Joseph DePalma IV, who also earned an LCC academic scholarship, and Laney Hadlock, a three-sport athlete who completed the LHS Health Science Technologies program to earn her LNA license. Laney will be attending Rhode Island College with her sights on becoming a radiologist.
