RJ Roy, Luc Ruddy, Depot program director Janice Marzano, Femke Kristensen, and Alex Young.  A new Depot scholarship has been named for Marzano, which will give a $5,000 to a senior who most embodies her spirit, kindness and love of the Depot.

To the Editor:

It is my pleasure to announce the launch of two annual scholarships to be awarded to two graduating seniors from the Depot Community.  These awards will be presented at Darien High School on May 24 beginning at 6:30 p.m.
The Bankwell For Good Scholarship will be awarded to the senior who has been a key member of a Depot club or organization and who consistently exhibited a high level of commitment and service to The Depot. This winner will receive $2,500.
The Janice Marzano Scholarship will be awarded to The Depot senior who embodies the most positive aspects of Janice’s personality; spirit, kindness and a true love for The Depot and its core values.  The recipient must not only possess these traits but also be in need of financial assistance. The amount to be awarded is $5,000.
Anyone who is interested in being considered must send a letter to Bonni Gottlieb the Executive Director of Development at bgottlieb.depot@gmail.com. Please specify which scholarship you are applying for. In your letter please relay to the committee how you meet the above criteria.  All letters MUST be received no later than April 18.
We look forward to receiving your letters.

Bonni Gottlieb
