ABA announces scholarships for high school seniors

Ashland – Each year the Ashland Business Association (ABA) awards scholarships to high school seniors residing in Ashland. This year the ABA will award two $1,000 scholarships to students who best demonstrate good work ethics, motivation, creativity and business/community interests. The deadline to submit all application and supporting material is midnight, April 26. For information and an application form, visit www.AshlandFirst.com/scholarships.

The ABA Scholarship Committee received 25 applications in 2012, more than any prior year. The Committee found it challenging to select just five finalists to interview. Last year’s winners were Jason Morse and Danielle Kapriellian. Morse is attending Boston College with an interest Biology and Kapriellian is attending Springfield College with an interest in Physical Therapy. Scholarship Committee members Adam Sachs and Beth Null made the awards presentation at graduation last June.

ABA Scholarship Committee members are Adam Sachs, chair (Centinel Financial Group); Bill Gath (The Homes Connection of Metrowest); Julie Nardone (Fearless Design); and Elizabeth Null (Learning Quest Education).

The ABA is a member association that meets every other month in the Ashland Library Community Room, 66 Front St., to provide networking opportunities and informational programs to business owners. The next meeting will be Tuesday, April 2, from 6:30 to 7 p.m., for early networking and 7 to 8:30 p.m. for the program. Meetings are free of charge and open to ABA members and guests.
