ANDOVER -- Three graduating seniors are winners of the Andover Hockey Association's scholarships.
The organization recently announced that Andover High School seniors Kelsey Dennehy and Kalli Archambault, and Central Catholic High School senior Elizabeth Smith, will receive scholarships.
Dennehy, an Andover Hockey member from learn-to-skate classes through high school, played left wing and center for the Andover High School girls varsity team. An avid reader whose favorite class is English, she plans to study media at Indiana University.
Archambault, a member of the program from the U-10 level through high school, played center for the Andover High School team. Having enjoyed studying biology, she plans to attend Fairfield University in Connecticut to study nursing.
Smith, also an Andover Hockey Association member from the earliest initiation clinics through its high school half-season teams, played goalie for Central Catholic. Smith, whose favorite subject is English, plans to study business at Fordham University or Virginia Tech.
A statement by the youth program's directors said the winners "epitomize the mission of the Andover Hockey Association in terms of their commitment, teamwork, sportsmanship and community service."
"We are grateful that their families chose the Andover Hockey Association for their youth hockey experience, and wish them luck and success as they embark on their next adventures in life," it stated.
The organization recently celebrated its 50th anniversary season. This is the second year it has awarded scholarships to players and former players who are graduating high school.
