2016 Memorial Scholarships

The HERo Scholarship ($1000.00), in memory of LTC Jaimie E. Leonard

This scholarship is awarded to a female Warwick High School student who represents intelligence, leadership and concern for her community.   Special consideration is given to the female students who served as mentors to a younger student.  We also consider if the student has overcome certain obstacles in her lifetime, however this is not a requirement.

Congratulations to this year’s HERo Scholarship recipient – Brittany Muroni

Brittany works part-time at the local Dunkin Donuts. She went to CTEC for Nursing and was inducted to their National Technical Honor Society. She has also taken several Honors classes at the high school and was a member of the Orchestra in her Freshman year.  Brittany will attend Sacred Heart University beginning Fall 2016 to study Nursing.


The LTC Jaimie E. Leonard Crew Member Scholarship ($500.00)

This scholarship is awarded to a coach-nominated student (male or female) who is awesome, humble, and able to persevere in the face of challenges, a mentor to others, someone who does not give up.  The winner of this scholarship is recognized as someone who values the camaraderie of the sport.

Congratulations to this year’s Crew Member Scholarship recipient – Caitlyn Hennessy

Caitlyn served as the Team Captain since her 10th grade year.  She suffered a terrible knee injury which required surgery early this year, thinking this would end her year and possible career.  Regardless she came to every practice and participated in the ab and cardio workouts. She came back weeks ahead of schedule in time to lead her crew to the state championships with a 6th place finish out of some 50 states.
