Troop 4 Scholarships by Linda DiDomenico, Fairfield CT

I recently had the pleasure of awarding $500 scholarships to five very deserving young men from Boy Scout Troop 4 in Wallingford, Connecticut; these scholarships are funded by the troop's annual Pancake Breakfast.  Our son joined Scouting in second grade; he was a Cub Scout with Pack 26 for four years before crossing over to Boy Scouts at the end of fifth grade.  Since he joined Troop 4 two years ago, I have become a member of the Troop Committee and also the Scholarship Committee.  The eligibility requirements for the scholarship are:  being an active member of the troop, age eighteen or turning eighteen during the year, and attending college in the fall.   Each applicant filled out an application, wrote an essay on "what Scouting has meant to my life", and supplied a letter of recommendation from the Scoutmaster or an Assistant Scoutmaster.  The Scholarship Committee reviewed the applications and then awarded the scholarships at the spring Court of Honor.  All of the scholarship recipients have been in the troop since sixth grade, and they are all Eagle Scouts, which is amazing!  They will be majoring in nursing, engineering (two), political science, and criminal justice.  Congratulations to this group of incredible young men!
