Seven recent area high school graduates will be heading to college this fall with financial support from the Meredith Village Savings Bank James D. Sutherland Memorial Scholarship Fund. Each year, one graduating high school student from each community in which Meredith Village Saving Bank (MVSB) has an office is selected to receive a grant from the Sutherland Memorial Scholarship.
The recipients of this year’s James D. Sutherland Memorial Scholarship are:
– Charley Cote of Alton Bay, daughter of Karen Clausen and Jeffrey Cote, attending the University of Vermont in Burlington
– Derek Rossetti of Moultonborough, son of Missy Clifford-Rossetti, attending Plymouth State University
– Emily Wernig of Gilford, daughter of Joseph and Jolene Wernig, attending University of New Hampshire in Durham

– Richard Burnham of New Durham, son of Glenn and Cassandra Burnham, attending University of New Hampshire in Durham
– Spencer Perreault of Meredith, daughter of Alison and Jack Whynot, attending University of Vermont in Burlington
The Sutherland Memorial Scholarship was established in memory of James Sutherland, who served as CEO and President of Meredith Village Savings Bank between 1982 and 1996. Each year the scholarship is awarded to deserving high school seniors from Gilford High School, Inter-Lakes High School, Kingswood Academy, Laconia High School, Moultonborough Academy, Plymouth Regional High School and Prospect Mountain High School.
