The Westborough Education Foundation has awarded its two WEF Scholarships to Westborough High graduates Brooke Oberlee and Gavin Grattan-Small.
Oberlee intends to study biomedical engineering at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, while Grattan-Small will attend Assumption University.
The scholarships were established for Westborough High School students who have showed outstanding leadership characteristics, an enthusiasm for study, and creativity and innovation. These scholarships are awarded to students who go “above and beyond” and embody the spirit and objectives of the World Economic Forum.
