Vicki Soto Memorial Local, State and National Scholarships

The Stratford-based Vicki Soto Memorial Scholarship is a four year renewable $5,026 scholarship awarded once a year to graduating seniors from Stratford High School and Bunnell High School. In addition to awarding these two local scholarships, we have expanded The Vicki Soto Memorial Scholarship to be awarded state-wide and nationally. One recipient from the state of Connecticut and one recipient from around the country will receive a one-time $5,026 scholarship as well. All recipients of the scholarship must be pursuing a college degree at an accredited university in the field of education and demonstrate excellence in academics, extracurricular activities and leadership skills. The recipients must also demonstrate the spirit to Live, Laugh, and Love both life and education the way Vicki did.

2018 Scholarship Recipients

This year our scholarship committee decided to award 5 scholarships in total, which is the largest number we have awarded in one academic school year to date.

The winners of the 2018 Vicki Soto Memorial Scholarship are Elizabeth Larsen of Bunnell High School in Stratford, CT, Molly Hines of Stratford High School in Stratford, CT, Taylor Brady of Stratford High School in Stratford, CT, Connecticut State winner Hailey Coleman of Oxford High School in Oxford, CT and National winner Emily Sedlak from Carlisle High School in Pennsylvania.

During the interview process it was very clear that applicants, Molly Hines and Taylor Brady both of Stratford High School, were equally qualified, passionate and dedication to education. For this reason, the committee awarded both of them with scholarships. All five of the 2018 scholarship recipients are pursuing degrees in the field of education and exemplify Vicki’s passion for education.
