LITTLETON, NH. "Good study habits, sustained drive and focus" is what company president David Sundman said of the common traits shared by this year's Littleton Coin Company scholarship winners. Presented to five area graduates the week of June 4th were three Littleton High School Academic scholarships, and two scholarships to employee family members. A total of $11,000 was awarded to hard-working area graduates!

Littleton Coin established the Littleton High School academic scholarships in 1991, to aid local students in their quest for continuing education and knowledge. This year, awards went to Littleton Regional High School students with the highest grade point averages: Valedictorian Alexandra De Palma, who will attend Emerson College; Salutatorian Lindsey Glines, who will attend the University of Connecticut; and Mae DesTroismaisons, who will attend the University of Vermont.

At a separate awards ceremony held at Littleton Coin, the children of two employees were also presented with scholarships. The Rena Hood and Bart McKinney scholarships were established in 1986, in honor of two long-time employees who were keenly interested in community service and education. The 2012 awards went to Littleton graduates Coty Young and Fausto Aponte. Coty, the son of Krista Young, will be studying to be an automotive technician at WyoTech in Blairsville, PA. Fausto, the son of Ana Quezada will attend Laconia Community College where he will be studying computer software engineering and repair.
