ROTARY CLUB of the BOUNDARY
For the last several years, The Rotary Club of the Boundary, has offered two vocational scholarships in the area. These scholarships, are offered to a graduating student who wishes to further their education in the vocation that they have chosen to follow. These vocations are those of technical nature (i.e. agriculture, carpentry, mechanic, refrigeration, hospitality, etc.), and are geared to college career oriented programs, rather than university. One is issued to a Canadian student residing in the Boundary area including Ayers Cliff, Hatley and North Hatley and immediate area, and the other to a U.S. student residing in Derby Line, Derby, Holland, Morgan, Charleston and immediate area.
The Club has named these scholarships “The Paul Lucas Vocational Scholarships”, in memory of Paul, who was instrumental in suggesting these awards.
These awards will be based on the applicants’ financial need, scholastic record, demonstrating dedication and desire to pursue a vocational career, and the recommendations of the school guidance personnel and teachers. Each chosen recipient will be
awarded $750.00, payable to the educational institution from which they have been accepted. The Rotary Club of the Boundary, will make the final selection from the applications received, and students will be guests of the club to receive their award.
Applicants may make formal application by submitting a letter, outlining the career goals, and a description of community activities they have been involved in and why Rotary should support their continuing studies. This letter must be accompanied by an abstract of their grades, as well as a letters of recommendation from their teacher, and a letter from a member of their community.
The 2011 recipients of these $750.00 awards were; Joseph Moore of Canton de Hatley, who studied Agricultural Machinery Mechanics at CRIFA, Coaticook, and Brian Norway of Derby, Vt., who studied Diesel & Heavy Equipment Mechanics at Universal Technical Institute.
