The Framingham Amateur Radio Association scholarship committee announced the club has awarded the 2020 Bev Lees Memorial Scholarship to the following two individuals:
- Victoria Anderson just finished her sophomore year at University of Massachusetts Amherst, majoring in Business
- Rebecca Weisman just finished her freshman year at Westfield State University, majoring in Earth Science
Anderson and Weisman will receive $500 scholarships.
The Bev Lees Memorial Scholarship was created in 2015 to honor the memory of FARA member Bev Lees, N1LOO (SK) . Lees was a former club president, and was active on the nominating committee, Field Day, and organizing the club flea market. Her passing was a great loss to FARA.
