Corbett was an unforgettable, young woman with a zest for life and adventure that was inspiring. Raised in Billerica, she attended local schools and graduated from Austin Prep in May of 2008. She
attended UMass Lowell for one year on academic scholarship before venturing to Austin Texas to pursue a dream of attending the University of Texas.
Kristen was a bright, funny and determined young lady who embraced each day with positive energy and attitude. Her smile was infectious and could light-up any room. Always eager for adventure, she approached life with confidence and courage. She was an exceptional student; a dynamic teammate; and a fiercely loyal friend, family member and co-worker. Kristen lived passionately, laughed often and loved deeply. She understood the value and importance of higher education while continually setting her sights on the next goal.
The Kristen M. Corbett Memorial Scholarship Fund has been established to honor the memory of Kristen M. Corbett and to support local students achieve their educational and vocational goals. Each year we award a number of $1000.00 scholarships to students who have graduated from Austin Preparatory High School, Shawsheen Valley Technical High School, Billerica Memorial High School, as well as students who have received a GED.
Students must be planning to attend, or attend an accredited trade school, college or university. Since 2011 we have awarded $16,000.00 to local students. Applications are reviewed by a panel anonymously, and judged on application responses, demonstrated financial need, recommendations and work ethic shown through academics, work history, volunteer history and/or extracurricular activities. Winners will be announced by June 1 2014.
Kristen M. Corbett Memorial Scholarship was founded on the idea of helping those in need. Since our organization was established, we have endeavored to provide help where the need is greatest.
Our team is made up entirely of volunteers. We advocate for those who need our help. Even a little help goes a long way.
That is why we are especially happy to find new volunteers who share our commitment to doing good in the world. Do you want to support us by helping with our work? Then do not hesitate to contact us. A helping hand is always greatly appreciated!
