Greater Lynn Senior Services (GLSS) is accepting scholarship applications from high school seniors at Saugus High School through the Lique Human Services Scholarship. Two $5000 scholarships will be awarded to students who attend one of the seven high schools located in GLSS’ service area and who have made an impact in their community or the world through community service. Scholarship applications are due to the SHS Principal’s Office by Friday, April 5, 2013.
The Lique Human Services Scholarship will be awarded to two seniors who attend high schools in Lynn, Lynnfield, Nahant, Saugus, and Swampscott. The scholarship is named in memory of Vince Lique, the Agency’s long-time Executive Director who devoted his career to helping others, particularly vulnerable senior citizens and people of all ages with disabilities, demanding that all people be treated with dignity and respect.
“Vince’s legacy is firmly rooted in his compassion for people. He measured success by the quality of his service to and advocacy for others. I believe in Vince’s theory that one’s individual success is directly related to the benefits received by those around us,” said GLSS’ current executive director, Paul Crowley. “The Vince Lique Living Legacy looks to honor the man and his service by encouraging others to do the same. We challenge you to succeed.”
Application forms are available through the SHS Principal’s Office or on GLSS’ website. Applicants are strongly encouraged to use the GLSS Application Worksheet to ensure all required documents are submitted. For more information about GLSS, visit www.glss.net.
