2015 Scholarship Winners

2015-05-28 19.39.56

The Connecticut Bass Nation is proud to announce their 2015 Scholarship recipients. Every spring, the CBN solicits applications from qualifying candidates that are reviewed and judged by the Scholarship Committee. Applicants must answer various questions, including a small essay and provide information about their studies.   Three awards are provided each year to the top applicants as chosen by the committee.

 

I first would like to thank the scholarship committee:   Matt DeSimone, Rob Germain and Dan Monroe. Since January 2005 the CBN has awarded over $29,000 in scholarships. The CBN thanks its sponsors, membership and the committee for making the scholarship program such a success.

– I am pleased to announce that Daniel Gage has been awarded the $500 scholarship award. He is sponsored by his father Don Gage from Pachaug Area Bassmasters. (Not in Picture)

 

Daniel, who was also an award recipient in 2013, is currently attending The Ohio State University majoring in Biology and minoring in Chemistry. He could not attend in person tonight as he is still busy at school doing Cancer research. Daniel maintains a 4.0 grade point average and plans to attend Med School after his undergraduate studies are complete.

 

– For the the $1000 scholarship award, I am proud to recognize Travis Frisk. Travis is a member of SilverCity Bassmasters and came up through the JR and High School ranks. He is sponsored by his Father Ron Frisk from the SilverCity Bassmasters.

Travis is graduating from Berlin High School and plans to attend UCONN at the West Hartford campus. A member of the National Honor Society and making honor or high honor roll every term in High School, Travis also amassed over 100 hours of community service, primarily in environmental conservation. Travis’s hard work in school and helping in numerous ways in both the CBN JR and High School fishing organizations will give him a great head start towards his future goal as he aspires to work as a fisheries biologist for the CT DEEP.

 

– I am honored to announce that Rebecca Noel is the recipient of the $1500 scholarship award. She is sponsored by her father Kevin Noel of the Mohawk Valley Bassmasters.

Rebecca is graduating from Lewis Mills High School as valedictorian of her graduating class. Aiming to be a biomedical engineer, she considered her volunteer work of peer tutoring as her most significant achievement. Her diligent work creating lessons and investing long hours paid off by transforming her peer in ways even beyond the Spanish class in which she helped him raise his grade by 20 points. Rebecca spent part of her 2014 summer as a student in a Harvard summer class in which she left a notable impression on her professor who offered a glowing recommendation. Rebecca will attend Wellesley College in the fall.

 

Again, thank you all for making this an opportunity and congratulations to the three winners standing before us.
