The Boothbay Region High School Boosters Club has announced that BRHS seniors Chloe Arsenault and Hunter Crocker are the recipients of the club’s first David Landry Memorial Scholarship. Each will receive $1,000 toward their 2020-2021 spring semester tuition after successfully completing their fall semester, said Michelle Bouchard, co-president of the club with Tracy Smith.
The perpetual scholarship was established following the sudden death of Landry, 67, on Oct. 9, 2019. Landry taught French at BRHS for 18 years and spent 20 years working in the school district’s technology department. He was also a longtime basketball and softball coach at BRHS. He was a passionate coach and mentor, and believed sports made his students and players better people, according to his obituary.
The scholarship was awarded by a random drawing, done on May 12 by Landry’s widow, Martha (a BRHS special education teacher), with help from Bouchard’s son, Drew Meader. Any senior student that has participated in athletics at least one season each year of high school is eligible for the scholarship drawing and the more sports a student participates in, the more chances they have to win.
Interested donors looking to continue the scholarship may send a check to the school with David Landry in the memo or send a donation through the club’s PayPal account, firstname.lastname@example.org
Checks can be mailed to: Boothbay Region High School, 236 Townsend Ave., Boothbay Harbor, ME 04538. For more information, call 207-633-2421.
