The following 2016 graduates each received one of 20 Maine Red Sox Service Scholarships presented to graduating seniors from Maine public high schools this year.

Local graduates receiving scholarships were: Braydn Fitzmaurice, Skowhegan Area High School; Jonathan Doucette, Waterville Senior High School; and Taylor Easler, Messalonskee High School.

As a sponsor of the program, the Ford Motor Company Fund’s, Gerry Miles was on the field to help present the students with their awards at Fenway Park prior to last Sunday’s Red Sox game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

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.
