AUBURN — Mechanics Savings Bank recently awarded its $1,000 Banking on the Future Scholarship to Lewiston High School graduate Christina M. Zahn. She is the daughter of Donna and Christopher Zahn of Lewiston.

While attending Lewiston High School, Zahn was a member of the National Honor Society, Upward Bound, chamber singers, Diaboli Musicae, Centre Stage Ensemble and the indoor track team. She received the Mount Holyoke Book Award in 2008 and the Androscoggin Retired Educator’s Association Scholarship in 2009.
