On hand last week at Brookfields Rotary was our scholarship recipient for 2019. Samantha Lacey of West Brookfield is attending the prestigious University of Vermont in Burlington where she hopes to complete her studies in 3 ½ years.
A graduate of Quaboag Regional High School, Sam’s collegiate learning focus is on social science and human welfare. She participates in a scholarship program and completed two research papers last semester, on the key issues of gender inequality and the effect of minimum wage on capitalism. She also is active in on-campus activities and holds an off-campus job.
Upon graduation, Sam plans to enter the field of political communication. She already is certified to work on the campus radio station.
