Father, son earn college scholarships together


An honors student at NAHS, Zachary has acquired a passion for East Asian studies and wants to learn to speak Japanese, his father said. The Willwerths are among 200 students at Northern Essex Community College who received $178,000 in scholarships.

“Our students are deeply appreciative of the many generous individuals and organizations that make these scholarships possible,” said Jean Poth, vice president of institutional advancement at the college. “For many of our students, a scholarship is what allows them to stay in school.” The scholarships range from $500 to $5,000 and come from private donors, memorial donations, local businesses and foundations.
