Viola Sastavickas Scholarship Applications Available

Viola Sastavickas was a life-long resident of Norwood and used the library frequently. The family of Viola Sastavickas made a donation to the Morrill Memorial Library in 2007 in order to create a permanent scholarship in the amount of $500. According to her daughter Kathy the scholarship is “a fitting tribute to our beautiful mother and to the library and staff who treated her with great respect and affection.”

This scholarship was to be awarded annually to a current or former library employee or library volunteer for one of the following purposes: undergraduate or graduate school, a formal course of study, or an enrichment opportunity (continuing education). The scholarship will once again be awarded in 2013 thanks to the generosity of the Sastavickas Family.
This scholarship has been awarded six times since 2007:

  • Elizabeth Porter, 2007
  • Lauren Bailey, 2008
  • Carolyn Bradley, 2009
  • Jillian Goss, 2010
  • Samantha Sherburne, 2011
  • Odhran O’Carroll, 2012

A brief application form is available online  or from the library. Please contact Library Director Charlotte Canelli at 781-769-0200, ext 101. Applications are due by May 15, 2013. The scholarship will be awarded by June 30, 2013.
