Hall wins Fish House scholarship

AMESBURY — The Fish House Foundation has announced that Benjamin Hall has been chosen as a recipient of its four-year college scholarship and mentor program.

Hall is a recent graduate of Amesbury High School and will attend Boston College in the fall.

The scholarship was founded by local businessman Alan W. Perkins in 1997, and since the scholarship has grown to become one of the largest scholarships of its kind in the region. The Fish House Foundation Board of Directors awards college scholarships to local students who demonstrate a strong commitment to themselves and their communities by participating in academics, community service, sporting and extracurricular activities.

"The idea is to provide supplemental funding for families who need additional financial assistance to ensure their children can go to college," said Perkins. "In addition to the funding, we also offer an incredible mentor program which gives each recipient an opportunity to grow personally and academically through regular contacts with a FHF board member."
