LEWISTON — Androscoggin Bank has announced that the Lesley K. Martin Memorial Scholarship recipient for 2009 is Amy Morin, a graduate of Lewiston High School. This is the eighth year that the bank has awarded the $1000 award.
The annual scholarship recognizes a Lewiston High School student who has shown leadership in extracurricular activities, community involvement and an interest in continuing education. 
Morin has been involved in the community throughout her youth. Prior to high school, she was a junior coach for Youth Cheering League. Most recently, she volunteered at Camp No Limits in Rome, Maine, an overnight camp for children who are coping with limb loss. The camp is a place for the children, as well as their families, to meet other children with the same disability. 
“The children at Camp No Limits taught me not to take what I have for granted,” Morin said. “The children were extremely ambitious to try new things and it inspired me to be a little less wary and to not be afraid to fail in my attempts.”
Morin achieved excellence at Lewiston High School while participating in extracurricular activities including captain of the swim team, cheering, National Honor Society and the blue crew. She holds a job at Sam’s Italian Food Shop.
In the fall, she plans to attend Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania, to earn a five-year master’s degree in occupational therapy.
