NKTA Scholarship Award Recipient 2017

Kayla Metivier, a Kingston resident, has been awarded the NKTA Student Success Award in 2017. Kayla will be attending Bentley University in the fall to study management and marketing.  Her long-term goal is to own a non-profit business for the benefit of those in need.

Kayla is very deserving of this award.  Among her High School achievements are service as

  • President of the Sanborn Chapter of the National Honor Society
  • President of the Student Council
  • Captain of the Sanborn Swim Team
  • Manager of the Sanborn Varsity Girls Soccer Team
  • Treasurer of Key Club, on which she has been a 4-year member

While pursuing all the co-curricular activities, Kayla maintained a weighted 3.9 GPA.

The award was given to a student who will pursue postgraduate studies that are entrepreneurial or financial, including studies of the trades, accounting or business.

The Newton-Kingston Taxpayers Association was founded two years ago. The $500 scholarship was raised by donations from NKTA members and friends.  We plan to award this scholarship again in future years, and invite your participation.  You can use the PayPal link on this page, or mail your donation to NTKA, PO Box 40, Newton NH 03858.

Thank you to all who contributed to the 2017 Student Success Award. NKTA wishes Kayla and her fellow 2017 Sanborn graduates the best in their post-graduate futures.
