Applicants sought for 2021 Minnie Welts Bridge Memorial Scholarships
PARKMAN — The Parkman Grange is announcing plans to award 2021 Minnie Welts Bridge Memorial Scholarships to one or more deserving Parkman students continuing their education beyond high school. If and when there will be a 2021 Memorial Grange Supper is yet to be determined.
Last year’s supper was canceled for the pandemic. Even so, the Grange awarded $500 scholarships to David Hession and Bailey Woodard.
This is a call for qualified applicants for 2021 Minnie Welts Bridge Memorial Scholarships of $500 each. Applicants must be Parkman residents, must have successfully completed at least one term of post-high school education and be enrolled for the upcoming term. Application packages may be picked up at the Parkman Town Office. Completed applications must be submitted by June 30. Winners will be announced in August.
Minnie Bridge (1909-2011) was a lifelong resident of Parkman, a retired schoolteacher and a life member of the Parkman Grange. In her memory, the Grange established the Minnie Welts Bridge Memorial Scholarship Fund to benefit deserving Parkman students continuing their education beyond high school. The Grange annually awards one or more scholarships funded through donations and the proceeds from an annual supper in Welt’s name. To date, the Grange has awarded $12,000 in scholarships.
