Teens To Trails offering Sara’s Scholarship

EDGECOMB — Teens To Trails or “T3” is partnering with the Chewonki Foundation to offer a scholarship opportunity for two Wiscasset teens.

“ Sara’s Scholarship —

Engaging Teens in the Outdoors,” was established in memory of Sara Leone who was lost to the Wiscasset community her sophomore year. Scholarship applications are due Jan. 20.

Leone was in love with the world, according to a news release. “Her strong connection with the outdoors played an important role in the passionate and compassionate person that she became.”

Sara’s Scholarship was originally created with donations from Sara’s family and friends in order to give other teens access to positive outdoor experiences.

Last year’s scholarship recipients, Annalisa Haase and Joseph Chapman, told the Wiscasset High School sophomore class that this wilderness experience can change a life and strongly encouraged them to apply.

Sara's Scholarship will again select one sophomore girl and one sophomore boy to participate in a three-week Chewonki Wilderness Program next summer where they will learn about the natural world as they learn about themselves.

“ We would love for the recipients to come from the Wiscasset area,” said Carol Leone, Sara’s mother and a Founder of Teens To Trails.
