On Sunday I had the honor of presenting two $500 scholarships to Rachel Wadleigh and Devyn Gardner.

Both Rachel and Devyn have made great contributions to the Northfield School District and Northfield Historical Society Youth Education Programs.  They both served as Jr. Curators, Jr. Posse Members, and as Museum Summer Assistants.  They were also contributing members of the SCOPE program and published authors of the book “Caught in the Storm.”

Rachel was honored as the NHS Student Volunteer of the Year for 2010 at a reception last July.  Next Tuesday, May 22, at an open house from 6-7:30 p.m. Devyn will be honored as the 2011 NHS Student Volunteer of the Year.  We will also honor past NHS board member Debby Larsen as our Adult Volunteer of the Year.

Congratulations to everyone!
