Our friends at JN Phillips Glass have announced that they will be awarding a $2500 scholarship.  You can download the application here.

Rosemarie Shaughnessy, a beloved member of the JN Phillips Auto Glass team from 1979 through 2010, was an unwavering advocate for customers and clients. Rosemarie was a unique individual who, through her own natural talents, ambition and drive, and with an uncommon commitment to help others, created lifelongfriendships and touched a great number of lives in a most compelling way.

In her memory, the JN Phillips Foundation is proud to present the first annual Rosemarie M. Shaughnessy Scholarship Award. This award is offered to graduating high school seniors (class of 2013) to help offset their 2013-2014 college tuition expenses. Eligibility for the scholarship award, in the amount of $2,500, is available to “our partner insurance agencies, carriers, and their families.”

The scholarship will be awarded to a student who plans to advance their education at the college level, and is pursuing these studies despite challenging circumstances. The recipient will be someone who has overcome obstacles and attained goals through perseverance, hard work and a genuine belief in his or herself, as well as in others. The chosen student will be someone who demonstrates concern for their fellow students and offers assistance to others when in need. The candidate will also demonstrate the willingness to speak out when their beliefs require it, regardless of whether their view is the popular one.

Applicants should complete the attached form and include a 500+ word essay describing themselves, their aspirations and how they embody the mission and values of the Rosemarie Shaughnessy Scholarship. The application, transcript, and essay must be received by May 24th, 2013 in order to be considered. The scholarship winner will be announced on June
10th, 2013.
