Four students awarded scholarships
NEWFANE - The Moore Free Library of Newfane announces that four graduating seniors from Leland & Gray Union High School were each recently awarded $3,000 Robert L. Crowell scholarships.
This year’s recipients were Matthew Emerson, of Newfane; Lily Dutton, of Brookline; Riley Barton, of South Newfane; and Liam Towle, of Newfane, all of whom will be heading off to college in the fall.
The Crowell scholarships are awarded annually by the Moore Free Library to graduating high school seniors and GED recipients residing in Brookline, Newfane, South Newfane or Williamsville, and who are entering their first year of college, community college, trade or vocational post-secondary education. The awards are based upon academic performance, personal growth, and contributions to the community and are funded through the generosity of the family of the late publisher, and Newfane resident, Robert Crowell, through the Robert L. Crowell Charitable Trust.
