Academic Scholarship

The PETIT FAMILY FOUNDATION has funded awards through the Plainville Rotary Club which selects and awards the prizes. The Foundation’s mission to “foster the education of young people, especially women in the sciences…” is a tribute to HAYLEY’s love of science and her ambition to study at Dartmouth College in her pursuit to become a doctor. These awards have been given to high school seniors who are National Honor Society members pursuing a college education in the science field. Additional awards are in memory of Dennis Chapman and in honor of William & Barbara Petit.
