Editor's Note: The following was submitted to Charlestown Patch by Colin Murphy, who was honored with scholarships by the Old Charlestown Schoolboy's Association on May 5.
Old Charlestown Schoolboy’s Association,
I am writing to thank the Old Charlestown Schoolboy’s Association for the two generous scholarship donations given to me on May 5, 2014.
Receiving both the Firefighter Patrick Kelly Scholarship and the John Boyle O’Reilly Society Scholarship is a tremendous honor and will be instrumental in helping me finance my studying in Los Angeles for the 2014 Fall semester.
Living in Los Angeles will add even more expenses than what I currently have going to college at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut. Receiving these scholarships throughout college have helped me greatly and I will forever be thankful for everything the Old Schoolboys have done for me.
