ShineOnCass Foundation 2024 Scholarship Recipients 

The ShineOnCass Foundation recently presented three scholarships, totaling $6,000, to local seniors who make service and kindness part of their everyday life. Two of the proud recipients are Messalonskee seniors!

The ShineOnCass Memorial Scholarship in Memory of Cassidy Jean Charette was awarded to Brayden Perry of Oakland. Brayden will receive a $4,000 scholarship to Merrimack College, where is pursuing a degree in nursing. Brayden is the 9th recipient of the annual ShineOnCass Memorial Scholarship, started by the Messalonskee Class of 2016, and continued in perpetuity by the ShineOnCass Foundation.   

The first ShineOnCass Community Scholarship, created to recognize service-focused seniors living in Winslow, Waterville, Lawrence, or Messalonskee school districts, was presented to two recipients, each receiving $1,000. Congratulations to Lawrence High School senior Hallie Firmage, and our own Emma Jane-Parsons, of Oakland. Emma will attend Wheaton College this fall.  

Both scholarships were created in honor and memory of Cassidy Charette, a longtime volunteer in the central Maine community and former Messalonskee student, who died in a hayride accident in 2014. The ShineOnCass Foundation awards over $10,000 in local scholarships every year supporting higher education, aspiring young violinists, youth mentoring, educational farm camps, youth soccer, and other initiatives  recognizing youth service and kindness. #WeAreRSU18 #EaglePrideMHS
