Northern Bank awards $5,000 college scholarship to Westford Academy graduate

Press Release

Woburn, Massachusetts, June 16, 2023 – Ryan T. Bellemore is the 2023 winner of Northern Bank’s annual James E. McGarry, Jr. college scholarship.

The $5,000 award honors the late “Jim” McGarry of Woburn for his 50 years of service to Northern Bank and pays tribute to his lifelong affinity for local fire and police departments. Applicants must have a parent or guardian who is an active firefighter or police officer in Middlesex County, Massachusetts.

Bellemore, whose father Timothy is a Westford firefighter, regularly volunteers at local fire departments and works as a ski patroller at Nashoba Valley Ski Area in Westford. His resume includes seven academic awards, excellent test scores and a high GPA. In Fall 2023, he will attend the University of Vermont to study Biology (Pre-Med).

“Ryan impressed us with his commitment to academic success and community service,” said Michelle Arnold, Northern Bank Charitable Foundation Committee Member. “We look forward to awarding another deserving candidate when our 2024 scholarship application opens in January.”

The Northern Bank Charitable Foundation annually administers the James E. McGarry, Jr. Scholarship Fund, which was established in 2014.
