Fisher Cats award
scholarships

The New Hampshire Fisher Cats and the Fisher Cats Foundation awarded 10 New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts high school graduates their 2014 Scholar-Athlete Scholarships. The $2,500 scholarships are based on their athletic and academic achievements in high school.

Money for the scholarships was raised through several Foundation endeavors, most notably the Granite State Baseball Dinner, which surpassed $1 million in fundraising at its annual event last November. With these scholarships, a total of $230,000 have been awarded through this program since 2007.

The Fisher Cats Foundation will award three special scholarships among the 12 – the Swymer Family Scholarship, offered annually to a student who has overcome a barrier and gone on to college; the Chris Carpenter Scholarship, named in honor of New Hampshire native and National League Cy Young Award Winner Chris Carpenter; and the Easter Seals Veterans Count Scholarship, presented to a New Hampshire graduate whose parent or guardian is an active, reserve, or veteran member of the United States Military.

Local scholarship winners include:

Sarah King (Nashua High School North), who was a member of the varsity volleyball team as well as a member of the National Honor Society. She plans to attend Butler University next year to study pharmacy.

Patrick Martin (Wilton-Lyndeborough High School), who was the Swymer Family Award. He was Wilton-Lyndeborough Male Athlete of the Year in 2013 and 2014 and a member of the varsity baseball and basketball teams. Martin will attend St. Joseph’s College of Maine where he plans to study history/secondary education.

Molly McCabe (Bishop Guertin High School/Brookline), a four-year letter winner in cross country and indoor and outdoor track. She is a member of the National Honor Society and a four-year Gold Honor Roll Student. She will attend Boston College in the fall.
