2020 Friends of the Library Scholarship Award


The Friends of the Shrewsbury Public Library is pleased to announce their 2020 Scholarship recipient - Zoie Leo. She will receive a Scholarship in the amount of $1,500.

Zoie is a 2020 graduate of Massachusetts Academy of Math and Science (MAMS) at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI.) She will be attending Olin College of Engineering in Needham, Mass. this coming fall.

When asked what this scholarship means to her, Zoie said: “I think it is super awesome that I won’t have to worry about expenses for books next year…”

While her focus in college will be on engineering, she is also really looking forward to expanding her horizons by taking a variety of literature courses.

Students applying for the scholarship were asked to write an essay on their favorite book. Zoie’s essay was titled "A Guiding Light" written about the book “A Light in the Attic” by Shel Silverstein.

Zoie is the daughter of Janet and Robert Leo of Shrewsbury. The Friends of the Shrewsbury Public Library wishes the best of luck to Zoie in her studies at Olin.
