The Captain Christopher S. Cash Memorial Scholarship will Award Three $1,000.00 Scholarships in Jun

On June 13, 2011, Christine Kirby of Saco and James McDermott of Old Orchard Beach each received a $1,000.00 Captain Christopher S. Cash Scholarship.
The two seniors were selected by scholarship overseers Nancy Lee and Bob Kelley, who established the award in memory of their son, Christopher Cash. The students were selected for their commitment to athleticism, leadership and community service. They also submitted and essay detailing their education goals. These are the criteria for applying for the scholarship. James McDermott is attending Lehigh University in Bethelehem, PA. Christine Kirby is attending Fordham University in New York City.
 
This June a third $1,000.00 Scholarship will be awarded to a graduating senior from Biddeford High School.  The applications are available through the guidance department at each of the high schools.
 
Proceeds for the Scholarships come from the annual " RUN For CASH 5K" Family Road Race, which this year will be held on June 25, 2011 in Old Orchard Beach.
