Lunenburg Library Page, Jeffrey Dike, is off to the Wentworth Institute of Technology in the fall.  The staff at the Lunenburg Public Library knows he will be sorely missed by all, especially our library users.  Just as the school year was ending, Jeffrey found himself with eight different awards that all attest to what we at the library already knew – this is an exceptional young man! His awards include:

The Rozy Bracani Memorial Scholarship, given by LCU
Leominster Lodge of Elks Scholarship
Priscilla Eisner Scholarship Award, given by JA PTO
LHS Blue Devil Award
Renaissance Award
United Way Youth Venture Scholarship Award
Massachusetts Daughters of the American Revolution Scholarship
National Honor Society Scholarship

We’d like to take this opportunity to wish Jeffrey all the best in this next phase of his life and thank him wholeheartedly for the hard work he has put into the Lunenburg Public Library.
