Meet this year' s Grantham Garden Club Scholarship winner, Ms. Allison Carl
Allison graduated from Lebanon High School with a 4.2 GPA, is in the top 10% of her graduating class of 2020, and has earned high academic honor roll achievement for the last four years. She also attended a five-week residential program in molecular biology at the St. Paul School's Advanced Study Program.
Accepted at four universities, Allison has chosen to start her college studies at the University of New Hampshire this fall. She hopes to combine her two interests, biochemistry and environmental sciences, to conduct scientific research into plausible solutions to major environmental and global issues.
Allison is both athletic and civic-minded. She is a great skier and has represented Lebanon High School in nordic skiing for the last three years. She played soccer with the Lebanon High School team, New Hampshire Soccer League, and the New England Premier League. As part of the Youth Conservation Group at Eastman, Allison volunteered to help build boat launches to prevent shore erosion, pollinating bee hotels, and educate kids about erosion and invasive species. She also tutored elementary students and did some political canvassing for local representatives. Allison is also the recipient of several awards, including the Smith College Book Award and the 2020 NHIAA and NHADA Scholar Athletic Award.
We strongly believe that this remarkable young lady is the ideal choice to receive the 2020 Grantham Garden Club Scholarship. Congratulations, Allison!
