Cheshire High School Senior Will Begin Coursework at University of Rhode Island This September
June 10, 2014 | Cheshire, CT—
Calcagni Real Estate has awarded its annual $500 scholarship this year to Cheshire High School senior Kelsey Uguccioni. Planning to attend the University of Rhode Island and study communication disorders and speech therapy, Uguccioni has been involved with Special Olympics for six years.
Among other requirements, scholarship applicants must submit an essay about the importance of their own community involvement. In Uguccioni’s essay, she reflected upon her work with Special Olympics. Community involvement, specifically working with those who face challenges accomplishing everyday tasks, has taught Uguccioni that she, herself, is only thing standing in the way of her success.
“We’re thrilled to present Kelsey Uguccioni with our annual scholarship,” says Calcagni Real Estate agent and scholarship program director Sandy Wagner. “Described by one of her teachers as one of the most selfless individuals at school, Kelsey truly embodies what this award is all about.”
Calcagni Real Estate has been offering the scholarship annually for the past 10 years. Graduating high school seniors who reside in Cheshire and plan to attend an accredited two to four year college are eligible to apply for the scholarship. The award is based on service to the community, academic performance, extracurricular activities, and financial need. The $500 prize is awarded upon completion of the first semester of college.
