Chelmsford Business Association Awards Scholarship to David DeDonato
The CBA has awarded the scholarship since 2008.
On behalf of the Chelmsford Business Association (CBA), it gives me great pleasure to announce the 2012 CBA scholarship award was presented to David J. DeDonato, Jr., son of David and Karen DeDonato of 4 Archambault Way in Chelmsford. David is a 2012 graduate of Chelmsford High School.
Since 2008, the CBA has presented $500 scholarship awards to selected recipients who are graduating high school seniors regardless of which high school they attended. This is the first year that the award has been increased to $1000.
The Scholarship Committee received almost fifty applications from eligible seniors… mostly from Chelmsford High School and Nashoba Valley Technical High School. Through a rigid process of elimination, the applications were trimmed until only one survived. It should be noted that the applications were “blind” i.e., they were individually numbered and all references to the applicant’s identity were removed or camouflaged. As a result, the CBA’s choice is always fair and impartial.
David appeared before the CBA’s Board of Directors on June 14th to receive his award. David plans to enter the University of New Hampshire and pursue a degree in Business Management. We wish him much success in this endeavor and wish him well in the future.
