Dollars for scholars

Five Bonny Eagle students have $1,000 more to put towards their college educations after Poland Spring awarded its annual Good Science Scholarships.

Shayla Harriman, Isabella Pothier, Elizabeth Forestiere, Thomas Horton and Cameron Ginter “aspire to pursue post-secondary education in the fields of engineering, environmental exercise and biomedical sciences, pharmacy and business,” according to a Poland Spring press release.
