Sandwich Republicans Award Scholarship to Ian Kirkwood of Sandwich

On June 12, 2012, before a large and enthusiastic crowd of supporters and activists at a fundraising event held for State Representative Randy Hunt (R-Sandwich) at Tomatoes Restaurant, the Sandwich Republican Town Committee (SRTC) awarded a $1,000.00 scholarship to Mr. Ian Kirkwood, son of David and Lisa Kirkwood of Sandwich.

Applicants were asked to submit grade transcripts, work and community involvement, and an essay. Never missing an opportunity to encourage young people to vote, the SRTC included an additional requirement that applicants needed to be registered to vote.

Among the applications received by the Committee were community volunteers, varsity athletes, students with perfect grades and students with part-time jobs. It is never easy to choose just one, but this year it was the outstanding essay written about the Constitution and the powers provided in the clause of what is “necessary and proper” that topped the list.

A top-notch student, volunteer tutor, mission trip volunteer, sailing instructor and a hard-working supervisor and employee are just some of Ian Kirkwood’s attributes. Ian is a 2012 graduate of Sacred Heart High School in Kingston and will be attending the College of William & Mary this fall.
