Molly West Scholarship
Molly West lived by Crystal Lake where she was well known in the community as an advocate for protecting and preserving the lake area. As president of the Crystal Lake Association, Molly’s was a strong voice within the town of Ellington on issues involving the health of the lake she loved. When she died, those who knew her honored Molly’s memory with donations which the Crystal Lake Association has used to establish this scholarship in her name. Molly’s love of the lake and of preserving the environment will live on in awarding this scholarship to a student who shares a connection to Crystal Lake or who plans to further Molly’s goals through pursuing a career in environmental or related sciences.
