I want to share some good news. In 1995 The Betty Ann Lima-Bryant Scholarship fund was established to help support the education of an Island resident who demonstrates an active interest in human rights and the welfare of others through a commitment to community service. Some years it has been easy for our committee to choose a recipient. Not this year. Not only was the applicant pool large. It was outstanding. On paths that range from social justice, law, and nursing to music therapy and immigration assistance, many Island young people are dedicating their lives to the service of others. It is very heartening.
