Scholarship donations sought

A scholarship for a Westbrook High School senior in honor of former Westbrook High School math teacher Ralph D. Small was initiated this year.

Five Westbrook graduates have begun fundraising for this ongoing scholarship through Maine Community Foundation for 2022 and beyond.

Small, who is retired and lives in Windham, was a dedicated and inspiring math teacher from 1965-2007, former students said.
