American Legion Post 48 members Ron DeMartino and Ted Fessel and American Legion Auxiliary President Julie Carney recently presented Mary Elizabeth Beames, a graduating senior at Guilford High School, with a $1,000 scholarship. Beames was chosen from 11 applicants based on her essay answering the question “Why Honoring a Veteran is Important,” her scholastic achievements, and community and volunteer service. Beames will attend the University of Vermont in the fall.
