High School Seniors Compete for Lique Scholarships

Share

Greater Lynn Senior Services has announced that it will accept applications from high school seniors for the Lique Scholarship.

Two students from one of the eight schools in the GLSS service region will receive the $5,000 grant. The eight schools are Lynn English High School, Lynn Classical High School, KIPP Academy Lynn Collegiate, Lynn Vocational Technical Institute, St. Mary’s High School, Lynnfield High School, Saugus High School, and Swampscott High School.

About The Lique Scholarships For Seniors

According to GLSS, the scholarships are designed for students interested in or considering a career in human services who have made a difference in their community through community service. The award is named and dedicated to long-time GLSS Executive Director Vince Lique, who passed away in 2006.

“Vince’s legacy is deeply entrenched in his compassion for others. He defined success as the quality of his service to and advocacy for others, GLSS CEO Kathryn Burns stated in a press release. “I accept Vince’s thesis that an individual’s achievement is exactly proportional to the benefits gained by people around us. The Lique Human Services Scholarship recognises the individual and his contribution while encouraging others to do the same.”
