2017 M-E Half Century Scholarship Awards
At senior awards night, several members of the Class of 2017 received scholarships from the M-E Half Century Scholarship Fund. Formed in 2014 by former alumni representing the first 50-year graduates from the Maine-Endwell classes of 1963 and 1964, the group awards scholarships to students who plan to pursue careers in public service, or who commit to serving their community through volunteerism as adults.

2017 award winners are:
Hunter Otis and Cordell Woolfolk, Keith Fruehan Award: Awarded in memory of a Class of 1964 alumnus whose potential was recognized by Principal Charles Miller, and who achieved success and gave important public service during his lifetime.

Taina Colon and Michael Kuhl, Gregory/O’Brien Award: Presented in memory of two members of the Class of 1966 who gave their lives for our country in Vietnam, and to honor all M-E grads who have served in the armed forces. These awards are given to two students whose dedication and future plans reflect dedication to others before self.
