The Charles River Regional Chamber will be awarding a scholarship this spring to a graduating high school senior from Watertown.

“The Chamber had been offering a scholarships to a high schoolers in Newton and Needham and Wellesley. We’re now adding Watertown to the mix, following our expansion into the community last summer,” said Chamber President Greg Reibman.
With the expansion into Watertown, the Chamber has added Mike Albano, EVP & CFO at Mount Auburn Cemetery — who used to lead the former Watertown-Belmont scholarship program — to the scholarship selection committee.
