The Friends of Needham Hockey, Inc. (FONH) presented their 2018 FONH Varsity Ice Hockey Scholarship to five recent graduates of Needham High School. These Needham High School graduates each played varsity ice hockey at Needham High and submitted an essay describing how the NHS hockey program has helped them prepare for future endeavors in college and beyond. The FONH reviewed essays from the applicants graduating this year. Each graduate was awarded a $500 scholarship.
The graduates receiving scholarships were: Emma Hasenfus (Regis College), Rose Evans (Middlebury College), Tyler McEvoy (University of Maryland), Danny McEvoy (Endicott College), and Meghan McQuillen (Georgetown University).
