This past June, Mitchell Rogers of Tiverton High School and Ian Larcom of Middletown High School were each awarded a $2000 scholarship by The Michael E. McCarthy Scholarship Fund. In addition, Avery Davis of Tiverton and Courtney Coen of Middletown were awarded $500 each. A donation of $2000 was given to Stonehill College to be awarded to a senior pursuing a career in education. With these awards of $7000 in 2011, the total given in Mike’s memory has reached $25,000!
We welcome to the Board of Directors, Leon Amarant, a long-time friend of Michael’s. Leon is our technology expert and has already created a website. Please visit ww.McCarthyScholarship.org to view the great job that Leon has done! We would like to communicate via email with as many of you as possible, so please include your email address with your donation this year. We have included the option to donate using PayPal on our website.
In terms of long-range plans, the fund is on sound footing and is on its way to being self-supporting. Of course, to finalize this goal we continue to depend upon our annual donors and upon those who participate in the annual golf tournament. With your continued support we wish to have a fully self-supporting endowment in four years and to have the opportunity to further increase our giving without formal fundraising.
The Board of Directors of The Michael E. McCarthy Scholarship Fund has been able to meet successive ambitious goals because of the enormous number of dedicated friends, family, donors, and volunteers. Thank you for continuing to support The Michael E. McCarthy Scholarship Fund.
