Diane Lunderville
Memorial Hockey Scholarship

A hockey scholarship fund has been established in memory of Diane Lunderville. Diane served as the middle school secretary at St. Albans City School for sixteen years. She had a great love of children and was an avid hockey fan. It is our hope that this scholarship will provide a positive experience for the children selected and the sport that Diane supported throughout her life.

This scholarship (not to exceed $300.00 each) will allow a St. Albans City middle school
boy and girl to attend the hockey school of their choice. The scholarship will be awarded yearly at graduation ceremonies to the boy and girl that exemplify the characteristics that
Diane valued:

• Love of Athletics

• Sportsmanship

• Desire to use one’s abilities to be the very best they can be.

Any questions should be directed to Casey Benedict or to Marcie Lewis at St. Albans City School (802) 527-0565.
Application available in the main office. Thank you for your participation.

The Franklin Grand Isle Bar Association would like to present a citizen award to a graduating 8th grader who consistently demonstrates respect for the rights of others and who has demonstrated leadership in the school or community. Deadline for applications is May 3rd.
