Brookline Women’s Club, town award scholarships to HBHS grad

BROOKLINE – The Brookline Women’s Club announced that Hollis Brookline High School graduate Alexi Migneault was the recipient its $1,000 scholarship.

In addition, Migneault was awarded a $1,000 scholarship from the town of Brookline to be received just before her second year of college.

The award was announced by Susan Santoski, Brookline Women’s Club Scholarship Committee chairwoman.

The club motto is "Friendship through Community Service." A component of the scholarship application was an essay explaining how the candidate exhibits the qualities of community spirit, leadership, friendship and a commitment to volunteerism.

Described by a reference as "personable, dependable, motivated," Migneault’s natural embodiment of the motto was expressed in her essay. She wrote, "I love meeting new people and I love helping those who need a helping hand. … I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me and what my next project for community service will be."

Migneault’s compassionate heart to make a difference in her community and her commitment to volunteerism sets her apart as the club’s scholarship winner.

The club also presented Migneault with a certificate of scholarship and an inscribed and illustrated book about the U.S. Constitution. A message of congratulations was posted on the community message board in the center of Brookline.

Migneault and her mother, Lisa Migneault, accepted the invitation to attend the Brookline Women’s Club’s meeting in June at Brusch Hall. BWC President Joyce Hegarty presented the award check, and attending members were able to meet Migneault and learn more about her plans for the future. She will be studying communications at the University of New Hampshire.
