Viola Sastavickas Scholarship

The family of Viola Sastavickas made a donation to the Morrill Memorial Library in 2007 in order to create a permanent scholarship in the amount of $500. This scholarship was to be awarded annually to a current or former library employee or library volunteer for one of the following purposes: undergraduate or graduate school, a formal course of study, or an enrichment opportunity (continuing education).

This scholarship has been awarded ten times since 2007: (Elizabeth Porter, 2007; Lauren Bailey, 2008; Carolyn Bradley, 2009; Jillian Goss, 2010; Samantha Sherburne, 2011; Odhran O’Carroll, 2012; Laura Hogan, 2013; Hallie Miller, 2014; Maureen Riordan, 2015; Chloe Belanger, 2016; Jyotika Tandan, 2017; and Dina Delic, 2018.)  The scholarship will once again be awarded in 2019 thanks to the continued generosity of the Sastavickas family.

Viola Sastavickas was a life-long resident of Norwood and a frequent library user. According to her daughter Kathy, the scholarship is “a fitting tribute to our beautiful mother and to the library and staff who treated her with great respect and affection.”

A brief application form is available to pick up at the library as well as on the library’s website, norwoodlibrary.org. Please contact Charlotte Canelli at 781-769-0200, ext. 101. Applications are due by May 15, 2019 and must be submitted electronically to the director: ccanelli@minlib.net. The scholarship will be awarded by June 30, 2019.
