Letter to the Editor: The Underdog Scholarship

Published on

Dear Editor,

I’m writing to inform your readers of a new scholarship opportunity for high school seniors.

Canty’s Underdog Scholarship was created in memory of Brad Canty, HHS class of 2018. Brad had to work harder than most due to gastrointestinal and immune issues, causing him frequent school absences. This did not take away from him being a thoughtful, kind, compassionate young man who would go out of his way to make some else’s day better.

The purpose of this scholarship is to recognize a student who has strength of character, a deserving student who may have gone unrecognized while in high school. We want you to know you were seen!

There will be 10 scholarships awarded in the amount of $1,000 to qualified seniors.

Applicants will have demonstrated good character, kindness and empathy towards others. Applicants may have also overcome health challenges, had to work hard on school work and/or overcome obstacles.

Other criteria include: Applicants must be a Hopkinton resident and a graduating senior that has been accepted to a post-secondary program. Applications are available in the High School Counseling Office or by downloading through Naviance on the Hopkinton High School website. The deadline for applications is April 14, 2023.

Warm Regards,

Becky Canty
