This scholarship was started about ten years ago by Methuen City Councilor Jessica Finocchiaro who was on the Gr. Lawrence Tech School Committee at the time. Her pick this year is Arielle Cavaretta. Each year, Jessica interviews all scholarship applicants and chooses our scholarship recipient. This year she chose Arielle Cavaretta.

100% of everything donated will go directly to Arielle.
