The Knights of Columbus Belltown Council 6190 was pleased to present our two 2020 college scholarships of $1,000 each to Katie Zimmer, daughter of Lynn and Michael Zimmer, and Joseph Marcin, son of Jeanine and John Marcin. Katie will be attending Fairfield University with a major in nursing. Joseph will be attending Fordham University majoring in biology with a focus on pre-med.
This year the competition was very close, and the council decided to also award two runners up with scholarships of $500 each. Lauren Annelli, daughter of Susan and Christopher Annelli, will attend Shenandoah University with a major in Occupational Therapy. Noah Gibson, son of Stacey and Eric Gibson, will attend the University of Hartford with a major in risk management.
The scholarship candidates were measured on academic achievement, community involvement, parish involvement, financial need, and essay quality. The Knights of Columbus wish all the candidates much success in the future.
