Each year the Rangeley Congregational Church supports students in our congregation who are seeking a post-secondary education.  This coming academic year, 2023-2024, the scholarship committee has selected three deserving students.  The scholarship committee was comprised of Marge Miller, Joann Bean and Mary Richards, as chair.

Our first recipient is Brooke Egan.  Brooke is the daughter of Patrick and Cyndy Egan and is a senior at the University of Maine, Orono.  Brooke will be graduating this winter with a degree in psychology.  Brooke has made an enormous contribution to the Church over the years attending Youth Retreats, serving as an usher, participating in Christmas Eve services and volunteering at the annual Turkey Supper.  We wish her much success in the upcoming year.

Our second recipient is Haley Morrill.  Haley completed a bachelor’s degree with honors, as well as receiving the Latin Honors Summa Cum Laude from the University of Maine the spring, 2021.   She is attending graduate school at the University of New England College of Pharmacy and is pursuing a doctoral degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences.   Haley has successfully completed the second year of a four-year program.   This past year she has been working in retail pharmacy, and as a teaching assistant and tutor at UNE. Haley is currently participating in a national program for students interested in pursuing pharmacy as a career.  Additionally, she was employed in a research lab studying antimicrobial resistance in pathogens.   We know she is going to continue to be highly successful at UNE and we are especially proud of her!

Our third and last recipient is Evan Smith.  Evan is the son of Shawn and Erin Smith.  Evan is a sophomore at the University of Southern Maine where he is pursuing a BSN degree in nursing.  Evan’s mother has been very involved in the Rangeley Congregation Church through her contributions to the bell choir, singing during services and teaching piano.    Evan’s long-term plans involve receiving a nursing license and ultimately working at Franklin Memorial Hospital.  We are pleased to have begun supporting his education.

We had the opportunity, thanks to generous contributions from our church family to award a total of $10,500.00 to these deserving students.  We are also fortunate the Rangeley Congregational Church has this many gifted students affiliated with our congregation.  Congratulations to them all and the Congregational Church wishes each of them a successful academic year.
