The Watertown-Belmont Chamber of Commerce awards scholarships annually to Belmont and Watertown high school seniors planning to attend college. The WBCC announced the winners.
This year the Chamber received multiple applications from Watertown and Belmont seniors. A volunteer scholarship committee comprising members of the Chamber’s board of directors, Katherine Rafferty, Mount Auburn Hospital; Pamela Giannatsis, Tufts Health Plan; and Sandy Penchansky, of Watertown Savings Bank read each application and selected the award recipients.
Here are this year’s award recipients:
o $1,000 to a Watertown High School (WHS) senior and Watertown Resident: Bailey Herrera Samayoa
o $1,000 to a Belmont High School (BHS) senior and Belmont Resident: Colleen Murphy
The Barclay Good Citizen Scholarship
o $500 to a High School senior boy and Watertown Resident: Sam Carton
o $500 to a High School senior girl and Watertown Resident: Stella Varnum
Congratulations to our recipients! We wish them the best in their college careers. A special thank you to our Scholarship Committee for making this happen.
