Waitsfield and Champlain Valley Telecom is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2020 Eunice B. Farr Incentive Award scholarships.  “It is a pleasure to award these scholarships on an annual basis.  We wish these motivated students the best of luck in their future endeavors,” said Eric Haskin, President and CEO of Waitsfield and Champlain Valley Telecom. This year’s recipients were as follows:

Champlain Valley Union High School – Brianna Bachinski

Harwood Union High School – Laili Iskandarova

Mount Abraham Union High School – Sydney Perlee

Mount Mansfield Union High School – George Zelman

Middlebury Union High School – Jeffrey Lokatys

Vergennes High School – Nathan DeVos

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 Eric 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.”

 

Congratulations to all graduates!
