Community School is proud to sponsor two annual scholarships this year, which are awarded to graduating high school seniors who attended the Community School as young children. The school is happy to honor their alumni, and to acknowledge two special young men. Each had a profound impact at very different stages of his life.
Groton Community School Scholarship in Memory of Taylor Benjamin Young is now in its eighth year. Taylor was a beloved and treasured Groton Community School student who lost his life at the tender age of four. The scholarship is awarded to one high school senior who exemplifies the qualities demonstrated by Taylor during his life, especially his kind and caring nature, and his curiosity and enthusiasm for school.
The second scholarship is in memory of Christopher Barton, the son of Daniel and Alisa Barton. Christopher was a personable and brilliant young man, whose important work in cancer research has guided future research and improved the lives of many. The award recipient of Groton Community School Scholarship in Memory of Christopher Barton will exemplify Christopher’s qualities of scientific inquiry and achievement in math, with interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) related pursuits, and desire to make a difference in the lives of others.
Groton Community School hopes that all eligible and interested high school seniors, who are GCS alumni, take the time to apply. All applications must be received by Thursday, April 30, 2020. For more information regarding either scholarship, visit www.grotoncommunityschool. org/gcs-scholarships
