Students Rose Piscuskas and Rakeem Sullivan receive Rotary, Mitchell scholarships

Posted on Wednesday May 27, 2015

Today was an exciting day at Wayfinder’s Camden Campus, as not one, but two of our students received major scholarship awards.  Rakeem Sullivan, who is headed to Dean College to study dance in the fall, is our new Mitchell Scholar, and Rose Piscuskas, who is headed to Evergreen, received a Rotary Club scholarship honoring her commitment to community service. Earlier this month we also learned that students Elijah  Harris (New England College) and Shannon Coccia (SMCC) had received scholarships from their schools, and that 2014 Passages grad Tasha Barrett received a presidential scholarship award from UMaine Machias. For a complete list of colleges our students have been accepted to this year, scroll down.  In the meantime…

Here is Rakeem, moments after learning he is our 2015 Mitchell Scholar:

Asked how she felt about receiving this award, Rose said, “What an honor to receive such a generous gift. I feel very proud of the work I have done this year and with this award I will be able to continue to explore the world through learning.”

Congratulations Rose & Rakeem!
