Congratulations to Our Scholarship Winners:

Three graduating Hanover County high school seniors have received the 2018 Bobby Ostergren/Melissa Dopp Scholarship. Alaina Head, a graduate of Lee-Davis, Madison Lee, a graduate of Hanover High School, and Chaz Nuttycombe, a graduate of Hanover High, received the Bobby Ostergren/Melissa Dopp Scholarships of $500 for their outstanding contributions to Democratic candidates and causes. All worked extensively on local, state and national campaigns and were active in their high school Democratic clubs. In addition, four runners-up were selected including Aimee DeBell, a graduate of St. Gertrude High School, Regina Tabay, a graduate of Atlee High School, Henry Franklin, a graduate of Patrick Henry, and Madeleine Gravely, a graduate of Patrick Henry. All had been active in Democratic efforts during their high school careers and were awarded $350 scholarships.

Thank you to Howard Ostergren and Carolyn Waugaman for their generous contributions that helped support the Hanover Democratic Committee’s scholarship fund and helped us reach more students this year. “These young people inspire us. In sometimes difficult situations among their high school peers, they persisted. We believe that the future is in good hands with leaders like these seven young people,” said Lyn Hodnett, chair of the HDC’s scholarship committee.
