Cape Cod Moms Advisor, Gary DellaPosta, CPA is pleased to announce Jacquelyn Grinnell as the winner of the 2016 Gary DellaPosta, CPA Business Scholarship for $1,000.
Jacquelyn is a local 2014 Falmouth High School graduate who has excelled in her studies at University of New Hampshire while majoring in Business Administration Accounting and Marketing. She has received excellent grades in her accounting classes, has earned high honors twice and currently holds a cumulative GPA of 3.58.
Jacquelyn is a first generation college student in her family attending the University of New Hampshire. Her parents Robert & Nanette both work within our community and her younger brother, Robert attends Lawrence Jr. High School. She has grown up learning that nothing is handed to you in the real world and that one must work hard for what you want in life. As a result she has paid her own way through college working full time as a manager in the summer in Falmouth at Jimmy’s of Woods Hole and the Surf Drive Snack Bar. She is a valued employee who is trusted to help operate the business responsibly and takes ownership of her job. She also works at the Dimond Library at the college during the school year.
In addition to working and going to school, Jacquelyn also volunteers at a therapeutic art club. Jacquelyn has demonstrated passion and dedication to her studies, her job, her family and to our community. It is because of her strong work ethic and devotion to her all these that proves just how far in life this young woman will go. She is a true asset to our community and we are extremely pleased to offer her this opportunity to help her finish her college education. Congratulations Jacquelyn!
