Junior Justin Mancini was awarded the Paul M. Kotila Scholarship three years in a row.
Mancini said, “I am very grateful.”
The scholarship is from the Office of Academic Affairs and was presented by Dr. Kerry E. McKeever, the Dean of the College at Rindge. Mancini was given this scholarship because he has a GPA higher than 3.0. He also had to write an essay about his contributions to the Franklin Pierce community.
Mancini’s mother and grandmother came to support him and his continued recognition.
“I am very proud of him,” Mancini’s mother said. “I make sure I’m here every year to see what he’s getting – he works hard for it.”
