In Memory of Michael Mason

5th Winner of The Michael Mason Scholarship Announced

Winthrop High School (WHS) Senior Nicole Pucillo has been selected to receive the Michael Mason Scholarship for 2016! The WHS Scholarship Committee selected Nicole because she exhibits the qualities for which Michael was so well known – strong leadership, academic excellence, community involvement and outstanding athletic ability. Nicole, who played volleyball, hockey and softball while at WHS, will continue to play volleyball at Merrimack College, where she’ll major in elementary education. She is shown here with Anthony "Butch" Martucci, coach of the WHS Lady BullDawgs hockey team and long-time friend of Mase and former board member of The 11 Foundation: In Memory of Michael Mason. Congratulations and best wishes Nicole!
