We are pleased to announce this year’s winners of the 2016 Leominster Blue Devil Scholarships.  Each year, longtime Leominster football PA Announcer Richard Tucker presents two $500.00 scholarships to deserved Leominster High School athletes.  One $500.00 scholarship is awarded to a male and female athlete.  These awards are possible thanks to generous local sponsors, Dandini Landscaping and Dandini Disposal Services, Dr. Timothy Gallagher, Sherri Tammelin and Lana Kopsala of Coldwell Banker, Richardson Funeral Home, Hometown Bank, Edible Arrangements, Espresso Pizza, Dragonfly Driving School and MCB Construction.  This year’s scholarship recipients are Jeremy Nartey and Kristi Anderson.

Jeremy was captain of the soccer and basketball teams at LHS, a member of the National Honor Society, member of the recycling club, member of the french club and National Honor Society of High School scholars.  Jeremy will be attending Tufts University in the fall.  In his scholarship application Jeremy wrote “Athletics have been a huge part of my life.  Through sports I’ve met some of my best friends and have molded relationships for a lifetime.”  Jeremy added “Playing high-level sports for Leominster High has taught that nothing is given; it is earned.”

Kristi played Varsity Ice Hockey from 8th grade through senior year. Kristi also played softball her freshmen year at Leominster High School.  She was also a member of the psychology club.  Kristi will be attending Westfield State University this fall as an early childhood education major.  In her scholarship application, Kristi wrote “Playing on the LHS co-op ice hockey team, has given me the opportunity to meet some of my best friends who I would never have met if it wasn’t for Leominster merging with North Middlesex and St. Bernard’s.”  She added “The years I spent playing for LHS has truly been the greatest experience of my life.  I will never forget all the memories and even though it has to end I am looking forward to continuing my education and hockey career at Westfield State University.”
