Tenth Anniversary

To the Marjot Family:

All I can say to you for the early summer report is WOW. We held our tenth anniversary celebration at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University in Grafton, Mass. All the feedback I have received from those who attended has been overwhelmingly positive. Thanks to all of you who came and those of you who wrote supportive notes and checks for the event. Also a giant thank you to Dean Kochevar, Susan Brogan and Dr. Mary Rose Paradis who took time from their incredibly busy schedules to help us with our mini science fair.

I thought you would like to see where we are on student research. Because of your support, we have dramatically expanded the number of students we are able to fund. Right now, believe it or not, we have seven teams either finishing up, mid project or starting. The trustees voted last fall to raise each award to $4500 overall meaning we have more than enough money in the bank to commit to over $30,000 of support.

Look at the roster below. Our Marjot scholars have competed and won in science fairs in Maine, Massachusetts and Vermont. Sarah Houghton has been an Intel semi finalist(now Sarah Houghton, MD) and this year we have Marta McBean who won five different awards at the Vermont Science Fair.

Once again, thanks to all of you. What a decade we have had.
