Ashland – Each year the Ashland Business Association (ABA) awards scholarships to high school seniors residing in Ashland. This spring the ABA will award a minimum of two-$1,000 scholarships to students who best demonstrate good work ethics, motivation, creativity and business/community interests. The deadline to submit the application and all supporting material is midnight, Friday, April 25.
This year the ABA would like to increase the amount and/or the number of scholarships. Businesses offering a contribution of $100 or more will be widely advertised in ABA online and print promotional materials. Checks may be sent to the ABA, P.O. Box 510, Ashland, MA 01721 by April 25.
Last year's winners were Joe Peine, founder and president of the Ashland High School Science Club, which helps promote science and learning among elementary school students, and Amanda Albert, who started the Food for Thought program, a community service that provides books for children in local food pantries and social service agencies.
