The Maryellen Miller Memorial Scholarship
The Maryellen Miller Memorial Scholarship was established in 2010 in honor and loving memory of Maryellen Miller, a friend and inspiration to so many Holliston residents.
Wife and proud mother of 4 children, Maryellen was passionately involved in her children's lives and was an avid supporter of their education within the Holliston public school system.
Maryellen courageously lived with breast cancer between December 2002 and her death in March 2008. She was one of the original organizers of the annual Walk Against Breast Cancer in Holliston which has to-date donated over $400,000 to breast cancer research and patient care at Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
The scholarship was created by Maryellen's sister, Maryann Marcoux; the organizers of the Walk Against Breast Cancer, Kathy Chisholm, Katie Connors, Denise Cronin, Jayne Jones, Pam Poor and Dawn Waddell; and Maryellen's friend, Kathy Cheever.
The mission of the Maryellen Miller Scholarship Foundation is to fund college scholarships to deserving seniors from Holliston High School who have given back to their community through volunteer work and/or assistance to family. Our hope is to capture the spirit that inspired Maryellen in founding The Walk Against Breast Cancer, more specifically, her desire to demonstrate her gratitude to Dana Farber and her determination to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer.
The scholarship application process takes place in the Spring and the recipient is awarded at the Senior Awards Night.
Thank you for your support!
