Portland, ME — U.S. Senator Susan Collins recently attended the Maine Sports Hall of Fame VIP reception, where she met with this year’s recipients of the 2019 Maine Sports Hall of Fame Scholar-Athlete Awards. The six students were presented with $5,000 scholarships during the 44th Annual Awards Ceremony on May 19 at the Merrill Auditorium in Portland.
The students include Alex Ezzy of Caribou High School, Tyler Bridge of Wells High School, Emma Hargreaves of Old Town High School, Nyagoa Bayak of Westbrook High School, Cymeria Robshaw of Penquis Valley High School, and Liberty Ladd of Falmouth High School.
