OSSIPEE — The Greater Ossipee Area Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the winners of its annual scholarships and The Christine Powers Memorial Scholarship.
Each year, the Greater Ossipee Area Chamber of Commerce offers scholarships to students pursuing post-secondary education or training to students who reside in the towns of Effingham, Freedom, Madison, Ossipee, Sandwich, and Tamworth. Recipients must have a grade point average of 2.5 or better reflected on their official school transcript for the 1st semester.
In addition, GOACC is proud to announce The Christine Powers Memorial Scholarship recipient.
This award was established in memory of Christine P. Powers, a longtime resident and supporter of the Greater Ossipee Area Chamber of Commerce. Christine was an energizing and kind woman who tragically passed in a car accident in 1986.
Christine played an instrumental role in the formation of the Greater Ossipee Area Chamber of Commerce in the early 1970s. The Chamber created the Christine Powers Memorial Scholarship to honor her memory.
The committee awards scholarships based on academics, financial need, and the students’ stated determination in furthering their education. The Christine Powers Memorial Scholarship also includes the students' involvement within the community.
