---- — NORTH ANDOVER – Eighty-two North Andover High School seniors will receive substantial financial help if they attend a state university or college next year.
They are this year’s local recipients of John and Abigail Adams Scholarships, which are given to those who do well on the statewide MCAS tests..
This scholarship is available to those whose MCAS performance puts them in the top 25 percent of their school district. To be eligible, students must also score advanced on at least one exam and proficient on the other two.
“We continue to have a high number of our students qualify for the Adams Scholarship and the Class of 2013 is no exception. We are extremely proud of our seniors and the example they have set for our younger students,” Principal Carla Scuzzarella said.
Recipients of the Adams Scholarship are granted four years of free tuition at Massachusetts state colleges and universities. Students who receive the scholarship must complete their college program in four years or less and maintain a cumulative 3.0 grade point average.
