LITTLETON, N.H. -- To support the academic efforts of the community's top students, Littleton Coin Company recently awarded five deserving graduates with scholarships totaling $11,000. "It's their commitment to quality and dedication to excellence that connects these students" said Littleton Coin Company controller, Stan Fillion, as he presented three of the awards June 6 at Littleton High's Class Night Awards Ceremony.
Littleton Coin established the Littleton High School academic scholarships in 1991 to aid local students in their quest for continuing education and knowledge. This year, awards went to LRH students with the highest grade point averages: Valedictorian, Amy Hastings, who will attend the Pre Med program at Dartmouth College; Salutatorian, Haley Smith, who will attend Clark University for Business; and Christina DePalma who will attend Quinnipiac University for Health Sciences.
At a separate awards ceremony held at Littleton Coin a week earlier, the children of two company employees were also presented with scholarships. The Rena Hood and Bart McKinney scholarships were established in 1986, in honor of two long-time employees who were keenly interested in community service and education. The 2013 awards went to Littleton graduates Jesse Hight and Morgan Wentworth. Jesse, the son of Judy Hight, will be attending Clarkson University this fall to study mechanical engineering. Wentworth, the daughter Theresa Wentworth, plans to attend Norwich University to pursue a career in nursing. Littleton Coin is proud to support the efforts of these hardworking students and wishes them well in their endeavors.
