PolyArts awards scholarship

Despite not holding the Hopkinton PolyArts festival last year, PolyArts organizers committed to the annual scholarship for 2021, with help from an anonymous supporter. This year’s winner is Hopkinton High School graduate Tony Weissinger.

An Eagle Scout and a member of National Honor Society, the Northeastern-bound Weissinger is very involved in local and regional theater and musical productions. His longterm goal is to someday operate his own nonprofit theater, bridging generations together. …

Graduating HHS student Alopa Waje received a $250 scholarship from VHS Learning, a nonprofit international college scholarship program. Waje was selected for making a video about the skills she learned from online learning and how those skills will help in college or her career.
