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.

Ap­pli­ca­tions must be re­ceived by May 31, 2012, by for­ward­ing to the fol­low­ing; Cana­dian ap­pli­ca­tions to; U.S. ap­pli­ca­tions to;
