Lost amid the bond and budget hearing and unfortunately after just about everyone had left the building, was the funding of the Adele V. Taylor Memorial Scholarship Trust.
In a very generous action by former Moultonboro Fire Chief Richard Plaisted, a check was written payable to the Town of Moultonborough in the amount of $125,000 to establish the scholarship fund from his proceeds of the sale of the Adele Taylor property to the town in 2014.
"Scholarships will be available to members of each years graduating class from Moultonborough Academy who will be pursuing post-secondary education, i.e. 4 year college, 2 year college, Junior College, Professional School or Technical School.
The scholarship money will be paid at the beginning of the second semester directly to the the College, Professional School or Technical School. Applications must be submitted no later than May 15th of each year, to the Guidance Department at Moultonborough Academy."
This is a very generous gesture by Mr. Plaisted and the BoS on behalf of the Town, thanked him for creating this scholarship fund and for his generosity.
