Greater Lynn Senior Services (GLSS) is accepting scholarship applications from seniors at all four Lynn High schools: Lynn English, Lynn Classical, Lynn Vocational Technical High School, and St. Mary’s, through the Lique Human Services Scholarship. Two $5,000 scholarships will be awarded to students who have an interest in or are considering a career in human services and who have made an impact in their community or the world through community service. Scholarship applications are due to each high school’s Guidance Office by Friday, April 8, 2016.
The Lique Human Services Scholarship will be awarded to two seniors who attend one of the seven high schools located in GLSS’ service area of Lynn, Lynnfield, Nahant, Saugus, and Swampscott. The scholarship is named in memory of Vince Lique, the Agency’s long-time Executive Director who devoted his career to helping others, particularly vulnerable senior citizens and people of all ages with disabilities, demanding that all people be treated with dignity and respect.
“Vince’s legacy is firmly rooted in his compassion for people. He measured success by the quality of his service to and advocacy for others. I believe in Vince’s theory that one’s individual success is directly related to the benefits received by those around us,” said GLSS’ current executive director, Paul Crowley. “The Vince Lique Living Legacy looks to honor the man and his service by encouraging others to do the same. We challenge you to succeed.”
Application forms are available through each school’s Guidance Office or on GLSS’ website. For more information about GLSS, visit www.glss.net.
