AUBURN — Kristina Blais of Central Maine Community College has been named a recipient of a 2017 Higher Education Assistance Foundation (HEAF) scholarships.

HEAF was founded in the 1950s by a group of banks, businesses, community organizations and individuals. Now administered by the Maine Bankers Association of Westbrook, the foundation annually awards 16 $1,000 scholarships to students majoring in a business-related field at select Maine colleges. It has awarded more than $350,000 in scholarship to Maine students since 1990.

A resident of Lewiston and graduate of Lewiston High School, Blais has earned high honors as a student in the business administration and management transfer program at CMCC.

She is a guard on the women’s basketball team that last year won the USCAA Women’s Division II national championship. She plans to attend the University of Southern Maine after she graduates from CMCC this spring.
