The Leary Family Scholarship

Valuing education is a cherished tradition in the Leary family and we are delighted to support the Windham Area Dollars for Scholars goal of expanding access to higher education for our local students.  Students able and willing to continue their studies can receive a variety of benefits: stretching their minds, developing the skills and perseverence to think for themselves, dealing intelligently with complexity, diversity, and change, as well as creating greater opportunity and freedom to succeed in a range of careers.  Our preference is that this scholarship go to a student who will attend Eastern Connecticut State University.
