Fifty-nine members of the Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School Class of 2024 recently were notified that they are recipients of the John and Abigail Adams Scholarship. The award provides tuition assistance to those attending four and two-year Massachusetts colleges and universities.

Noah Renner of Norfolk was a recipient of the scholarship, and from Wrentham, Molly McDermott, Hailey McLeod, Callie Schweitzer were also recipients.

Adams Scholarship eligibility is determined by MCAS performance. Nearly 27% of the Class of 2024 received the honor, meaning in Grade 10 they attained “advanced” performance in at least one of the three major categories (English Language Arts, Math, STEM: Biology, Chemistry, Introductory Physics or Technology/Engineering). In addition, the recipients must have attained proficient status in the remaining two assessments.

“The entire Tri-County community is proud of these students for attaining this prestigious honor,” Superintendent Dr. Karen Maguire said. “It is a testament not only to them and their hard work but to our faculty and staff for putting them in a position to succeed.”
