NEWTON/KINGSTON —Congratulations to Sanborn Graduates! The graduating class of 2019 has over 90% who are meeting the recently adopted standards for Student Success.
On May 20, following a recognition banquet for outstanding scholars, the awards night was held in the Sanborn Regional School District High School auditorium. $52,000 in scholarships were awarded along with recognitions for outstanding academic achievement.
One of the scholarship recipients was Matt Sarette, who will pursue certification as a pipe fitter, followed by becoming a certified plumber. Congratulations to your entrepreneurial spirit and determination to succeed, Matt, and to your athleticism and leadership.
According to Jim Baker, NKTA Chairman and School Board member from Newton, the Newton-Kingston Taxpayers Association, which was founded in 2015, is giving its scholarship for the third year. The funds are donated specifically for the scholarship by NKTA members and other community members. He thanked all the donors who have given so generously.
NKTA Board Member and School Board Member-At-Large Tammy Mahoney said, “This award is given to a student pursuing postgraduate studies that are entrepreneurial or financial, including studies of the trades, accounting or business.
The award this year goes to a student who’s exhibited the best qualities of leadership, hard work, and dedication. He’s one of only a few students who completed an internship in his Junior year. He’s an honor roll student and a New Hampshire Scholar and will graduate next month with Distinction. He’s also found time to excel at sports here at Sanborn, in basketball, track, and most especially, in football, where he was named captain of the varsity team and Offensive MVP.
This summer he’ll begin his studies at the Granite State Trade School and we know he’ll be successful in his chosen field of plumbing and gas fitting.
We’re so pleased to award the Sanborn Success Award to Matt Sarette.”
Jim Baker said, “It is great that community organizations and businesses give scholarships to help our Sanborn students succeed moving forward after graduation. I hope that more and more will get involved. It would be great to exceed the $52.000 given next year.”
