Sandwich Republicans Award Scholarship to Daphne Vantine of East Sandwich
The Sandwich Republican Town Committee (SRTC) awarded its 2014 scholarship to Ms. Daphne Vantine, daughter of Nicholas and Linda Vantine of East Sandwich.
Applicants were required to submit grade transcripts, work and community involvement, proof of voter registration and an essay in order to be considered for the $1,000.00 scholarship.
The SRTC received applications from bright and well-rounded students involved in church, community activities, sports and charitable efforts. And while all candidates were seriously considered, our committee experienced a first this year. For the first time, in the history of awarding the scholarship, our committee unanimously voted in the first round to award this year’s scholarship to a special young lady, Miss Daphne Vantine.
A graduate of Cape Cod Academy, Daphne is a Cape and Islands Basketball All-Star and varsity basketball and soccer player who has been very involved in sports medicine and health related organizations.
Daphne’s volunteer work has included the Cape Cod Hospital, the Red Cross and Cape Cod Cares For The Troops.
Daphne will be attending the University of Delware this fall where she hopes to further her education and interests in physical therapy and rehabilitation technology that will improve the lives of athletes and veterans of the U.S. military.
