COOPERS MILLS — Morgan Emond, of Windsor, has been awarded the 2018 Hardy Memorial Scholarship by the Coopers Mills Volunteer Fire Department.

The scholarship is awarded annually in memory of Larry and Dot Hardy, a long-time member of the local fire service and his dedicated and supportive wife. The scholarship is awarded to a student from Whitefield or one of its mutual aid towns of Jefferson, Somerville and Windsor that is both pursuing higher education and intends to serve in the emergency services.

A 2018 graduate of Erskine Academy, Emond plans to attend Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida, where she intends to prepare herself to attend medical school. Emond will participate in Eckerd’s volunteer Emergency Response Team, which utilizes students for support in handling a variety of emergency situations within the school’s campus. In addition to her intent to participate in Eckerd’s emergency service program, Emond’s numerous accomplishments make her more than deserving of the Hardy Memorial Scholarship. Highlights of Emond’s high school career include completion of numerous honors, advanced placement, and dual enrollment college-level courses; playing on the school’s soccer and lacrosse teams; membership in the National Honor Society; and leaving a significant impact on the community through completion of over 50 hours of community service.

The application period for the 2019 Hardy Memorial Scholarship will be held during May of next year. For further information, contact CMVFD association member Robin Huntley at [email protected].
