The Sanford Regional Technical Center’s Academy of Business mission is to create a community of diverse lifelong learners who have aspirations to pursue post-secondary education in business or attain entry-level skills to successfully gain employment in the workforce after high school. Upon successful completion of this program with a dual enrollment opportunity through Thomas College students may earn up to 12 college credits for free, saving almost $12,000 before they leave high school. These scholarships are in memory of Faith Ballenger who was a dedicated community volunteer who gave her time and energy and never asked for anything in return.
This year’s scholarship awards of $1,000 each will go to
- Hanna O’Neil, Noble High School graduating senior from Lebanon who will be attending Husson University studying Business Administration
- Anna Mahoney graduating senior from Kennebunk High School who will be attending Southern Maine Community College pursuing an Associate’s Degree in Medical Assisting.
