NORWICH – For the second year, the Chenango County Historical Society will award the Elinor Robb Troicke Scholarship to a local high school student who is hoping to start a career in the realm of museum studies.
CCHS staff and volunteers are busy sorting scholarship applications that were solicited to students from all four corners of the county. Although the application process is closed now, the organization says its goal remains to promote professions that underlie the mission of the museum.
“The purpose of this scholarship is to foster an interest in history and reward kids who choose to take this path in life,” explained CCHS Director Meghan Molloy. “All the winners who are picked are active members of the community and active in promoting the history of Chenango County.”
