The Michael V. Dalton Memorial Scholarship is awarded to Lynnfield High School graduating seniors selected by our Selection Committee who have demonstrated perseverance when faced with different types of adversity. We chose to honor Michael in this way to be mindful of not only the success that can come from persevering, but more importantly the individual growth of a person as a result of such adversity. The Selection Committee recognizes that challenges come in many different forms, including but not limited to: academic/social/emotional/mental/health & wellness difficulties/disabilities/personal struggles and hardships as just a few examples. Applicants are asked to explain how they grew as a person and the valuable lessons they learned from their experience of doing something despite the difficulty involved.
