The second scholarship was awarded to Don Nguyen of Pleasant Mount. He will begin his sophomore year at West Chester College this fall, majoring in music. Nguyen was awarded a $1,000 scholarship for his undergraduate studies.
Presentation of the scholarship awards was made at the HNB Corporate Center in Honesdale.
The Albert O. Miller, Dorothy Tozer Miller, and Savona Commandery #89 Scholarship Fund was established by the Last Will and Testament of Dorothy Tozer Miller. The Millers understood and advocated the primary Masonic ideals of education, worship and charity. To that end, the scholarship fund was established to promote intellectual enlightenment among the youth of Wayne County. Wayne County residency is highly considered in the award, but residency outside Wayne County does not automatically disqualify an applicant. Award decisions are made by a Scholarship Committee consisting of five Knights Templar of the Savona Commandery #89, Honesdale, PA.
The Honesdale National Bank, established in 1836, holds the distinction of being the area’s oldest independent community bank headquartered in Northeastern PA, with offices in Wayne, Pike, Susquehanna, Lackawanna and Luzerne Counties.
