Althea Cynewski Memorial Scholarship

In establishing the Althea Cynewski Memorial Scholarship, we hope that the yearly recipient will find the same joy and satisfaction in his/her career as Althea did in every day of hers. Preference will be given to students that attended CES.

Each year a graduating AHS senior majoring in Elementary Education or Nursing will receive this award. A $1,000 scholarship will be awarded based on achievement and character, with the hopes of continuing to honor Althea’s legacy until at least 2025, as that class includes the last kindergarten students taught by Althea.

Althea grew up in Amesbury and graduated with the AHS Class of 1982. After earning her degree in Elementary Education from Fitchburg State College, Althea enjoyed many years of teaching kindergarten and first grade at the Cashman Elementary School, and watching her students learn and grow was a great reward for her.

Donations of any amount are welcome. Please enter the contribution you are comfortable sharing with us…and thanks for your generosity!
