For the third straight year, more than 80 seniors at Shawsheen Valley Technical High School were honored with John and Abigail Adams Scholarships.
“We applaud our senior scholars for their tremendous success in securing these scholarships,” said Superintendent/Director Charles Lyons. “Twenty five percent of our seniors have acquired these scholarships. The incredible success of the seniors has saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in tuition to state universities. Well done by all.”
The distinction awards non-need-based state-supported undergraduate tuition waivers to students who are awarded John and Abigail Adams Scholarship by the Department of Education. In other words, Shawsheen Tech seniors receiving these awards get full tuition to state universities.
Eligible students score in the Advanced category in either the Mathematics or the English language arts section of the Grade 10 MCAS test and score in the Proficient or Advanced category on the second subject (Mathematics or English language arts). These students also have a combined MCAS score on these assessments that ranks in the top 25 percent in their school district
