We are proud to announce the 2021 James A. Burley, Jr. College Scholarship winners! The first-place prize of $5,000 went to Lily Shaughnessy, who is a student at Quinnipiac University (and a 2020 winner!); Julia Terra-Salomão, a Brown University student, received the second-place prize of $3,000; and Kimberly-Ann Lang, who will attend Worcester State University, earned the third-place prize of $2,000.
Each year RTN awards three scholarships totaling $10,000 to students who are enrolled in an undergraduate or post high school technical college. The contest honors James A. Burley, Jr., who served as Chairman of RTN’s Board of Directors for more than 30 years. This contest is open only to RTN members or their dependents.
Winners are selected based on a theme-based essay. This year’s topic was “Describe how COVID-19 has impacted your education and social life.”
Thank you to everyone who participated in the contest. We wish all our applicants well in their academic careers.
