BOSTON — Brittany Corson, a 2016 Mount Desert Island High School graduate, was one of 20 graduates in the state to receive a Maine Red Sox Service Scholarship.
She was presented with the award at a recent Boston Red Sox game at Fenway Park against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
As a sponsor of the program, the Ford Motor Company Fund had representative Gerry Miles on the field to help present the students with their awards.
This is the scholarship program’s third year in Maine. It was first launched in New Hampshire in 2010 and now runs in all five New England states outside of Massachusetts. The $1,000 Red Sox Service Scholarships are awarded to students based on academic performance, financial aid eligibility and demonstrated community service.
Brittany will attend Endicott College in Beverly, Mass., this fall.
