Students from 11 different states were recently recognized for their leadership and commitment to helping their neighbors in need. Four of the 20 winners are from Maine, and two of the four are from Brunswick.
Stephen Backman and Aaron Carlton, who both attend Brunswick High School, were among those Major League Major League Baseball Players Trust awarded $2,000 college scholarships April 24. The other Maine students are from Poland and Saco. The high school students were chosen for their dedication to community service and encouraging others to get involved. Each is a member of the Action Team national youth volunteer program created and administered by the Major League Baseball Players Trust and Volunteers of America. In honor of National Volunteer Week in April, the scholarship awards are based on the volunteer activities, academic achievements and leadership skills of high school students serving as Action Team Captains. These students take on the responsibility of planning and organizing Action Team-centric volunteer events while encouraging others to get involved in their communities.
Each scholarship application was reviewed by a committee comprised of representatives of the Major League Baseball Players Trust and Volunteers of America, and included Mark Melancon of the San Francisco Giants and Craig Stammen of the San Diego Padres.
