“I dream someday to impact and shape the lives of students and inspire them to reach their dreams,” wrote Mountain, who plans to attend Salem State and study elementary education.
Andover High recipients of the scholarships will be announced today. Ritzer was a resident of Andover.
In a statement, Ritzer’s family thanked those who supported the scholarship fund.
The scholarship winners, they wrote, “will assist individuals who — like Colleen — discovered early in life their passion for teaching.”
