The Mystic Woman’s Club, a member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs of CT, awarded scholarships to graduating seniors from three area high schools. Chosen by their high school’s guidance departments, the recipients are Samantha Berthod, Grasso Southeastern Technical High School; Chelsea Fogarty, Fitch High School and Erin Lee, Stonington High School.
Samantha will be attending Bay Path College in the fall to study Forensic Science. Chelsea is planning to attend Worcester Polytechnic Institute majoring in Chemical Engineering with dual MBA degree. Erin is going to Stetson University to study accounting.
Also, each year a $1,000 Phelps Scholarship is given to a member’s child, grandchild or great-grandchild and is funded by contributions from club members and by fundraisers. The scholarship is in memory of Clyde and Shirley Phelps.
This year it is awarded to Virginia Venuto, daughter of Gail and Michael Venuto, Washington, and granddaughter of Mystic Woman’s Club member Jan Carreau.
