According to Margaret Perreault, president and CEO of Batavia Chamber of Commerce, the scholarship committee was impressed by the quality of the applicants for this first-year scholarship program.
“When we launched the program in January, we were happy to support our community in a new way,” Perreault stated in the release. “Because we are looking for future inspiring leaders, the scholarship questions explored this sentiment. The answers we received were definitely inspirational, making it difficult to choose only one awardee in each category.

“We sincerely wish our scholarship winners, along with all the top-notch applicants, much success as they continue their educational journey,” Perrault stated. “Ending their high school career during a pandemic means many worthwhile accomplishments aren’t receiving the normal fanfare, but they are no less important. Congratulations to all.”
