MIDDLEBURY - Marjorie Mason from Enosburg Falls was recently awarded the Fletcher "Buster" Brush Memorial Scholarship for Vermont students. She received a $1,000 scholarship which can be renewed annually for up to four years.
Mason is a 2011 graduate of Enosburg Falls High School. She will be attending Saint Joseph's College in Maine to study nursing.
Mason was chosen as a scholarship recipient because she demonstrates the values of compassion, hard work, community service, school spirit and leadership that Buster both embodied and espoused.
Buster Brush was a long time employee of Co-operative Insurance Companies in Middlebury and worked with insurance agents in Vermont and New Hampshire. He was also a tireless community volunteer who had a special interest in youth activities, particularly youth ice hockey and the Youth Safety Council of Vermont.
Brush Memorial Scholarships are awarded annually to two graduating Vermont and New Hampshire high school students to honor Buster's memory by cultivating and rewarding active, well-rounded young citizens.
