LEWISTON – The Lewiston High School Alumni Foundation announces an increase in the number of $1,500 scholarships for the graduates of 2004 and beyond to 15 a year.

Four of the new scholarships are the result of a contribution from a class of 1974 alumnus, David Roux. Roux has also made a commitment to support the scholarships for the next 10 years.

Two of his scholarships of $1,500 each annually (one to a male and one to a female) will be for a four-year duration, payable annually to the recipient/college for second-semester expenses. The scholarships are in memory of the donor’s father, Donald Roux.

The other two Roux awards are for $1,500 each and are one-time (single award) grants. One scholarship is given to the memory of Roux’s brother, James Roux; the second to the memory of his uncle, Joseph Deschenes.

Other newly-named and sponsored scholarships are also for $1,500 each. One grant is in memory of Adrienne Cote Emmi and is sponsored by Mrs. Shaun Butler.

The final newly-named award is in the memory of Atty. Paul A. Cote and is supported by the Butler and Cote families.

With these new scholarships, a total of 15 scholarships worth $31,500 will be awarded to the class of 2004 in June. In the past four years the foundation has funded 31 scholarships totaling $46,500.

All recipients are chosen by a special scholarship committee at the high school. Applications are available in the Lewiston High School guidance office and should be completed and returned without delay.
