Waitsfield and Champlain Valley Telecom is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2017 Eunice B.

Each year, Waitsfield and Champlain Valley Telecom grants six scholarships, one to each of the public high schools that students from our service area attend.  These scholarships are donated in memory of the late Eunice B. Farr, former owner and operator of the Waitsfield-Fayston Telephone Company and grandmother of Gregg Haskin.  The criteria of the scholarship is as follows, “The award should be presented to a graduating senior that plans subsequent education, be it college or trade school.  The faculty should select an individual that has shown a steady improvement in his or her academics, but is not necessarily at the top of the class.  The award is designed to benefit a hard working graduate that his or her instructors have found to demonstrate a sincere effort to improve grades/results and plans continuing education.”
