Adams scholarships for 28 seniors

Old Colony Regional Vocational Technical High School is pleased to announce that twenty-eight (28) seniors are recipients of John and Abigail Adams Scholarships.

The scholarship is available to students whose MCAS performance puts them at the top 25 percent in their district. To be eligible, students must either score Advanced on one exam and Proficient on the other, or Advanced on both the English and Math exams.

Recipients are granted four years of free tuition at the University of Massachusetts or at any of the nine state or 15 community colleges in Massachusetts.

Education Commissioner David P. Driscoll stated: “The students receiving this scholarship earned it through their hard work, dedication, and commitment to their education. I am very proud of each and every one of them, and pleased to be able to reward their efforts with this opportunity to continue their education beyond high school.”

Students who received the Adams Scholarship must complete their college program in four years or less and maintain a 3.0 grade point average. Personal letters from Governor Mitt Romney were mailed to each student recipient.
