Massport Awards Annual Memorial Scholarships

Scholarships honor memory of longtime employees

(BOSTON, MA; Sept. 5)  – The Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) announced the recipients of the Authority’s annual memorial scholarships honoring longtime employees Donna Rauseo and Lowell Richards III. Scholarships are awarded to graduating high school students who have shown an interest in community service, have been accepted to an accredited college or university and have submitted essays describing their career interests or how community service has affected their outlook on life. Scholarship essays are judged by a committee of Massport employees and family representatives.

“I would like to congratulate this year’s memorial scholarship awardees and wish them luck in their future studies,” said Massport CEO Thomas P. Glynn. “We look forward to seeing where their education takes them. It is fitting that we remember our friends and colleagues with a living memorial to their memory – and one that also carries on their important work.”

The $5,000 Donna Rauseo Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually to a female student who resides in East Boston. Ms. Rauseo was a graduate of East Boston High School and for more than 20 years was the executive assistant to Thomas J. Kinton, Jr. when he served as Aviation Director of Logan Airport and later as CEO and Executive Director for Massport.

The 2014 Donna Rauseo Memorial Scholarship was awarded to East Boston resident Alexa Amato. Alexa is an East Boston resident, a graduate of East Boston High School, a member of the National Honor Society, played on the Girls Varsity Basketball Team and volunteers at Eastie Pride Day. In her essay, Alexa wrote that her aunt told her, “you have a responsibility to your community and you need to show it.” Amato will be attending Lasell College in the Communication-Sports Communication Program.

The $5,000 Lowell Richards Memorial Scholarship is awarded to a student who resides in the City of Boston. Mr. Richards was responsible for Massport’s strategic and master planning activities, including the airports and the seaport, as well as the agency’s private commercial and residential real estate development in South Boston, East Boston, and Charlestown. He joined Massport in 1999. Mr. Richards previously was an Assistant Secretary of Administration and Finance and Chief Development Officer for the Commonwealth and Deputy Mayor for Fiscal Affairs and Collector-Treasurer in the City of Boston.

The 2014 Lowell Richards III Memorial Scholarship was awarded to South Boston resident Vivian Morris. Morris is a graduate of the Boston Collegiate Charter School where she held 4.42 GPA. Morris will be attending Smith College and she is interested in studying Government. As a member of the Mayor’s Youth Council, Vivian coordinated several Youth Fitness Challenges to get young people excited about fitness opportunities and healthy lifestyles. She also spearheaded a project called Youth Lead the Change: Participatory Budgeting in Boston, the first youth focused democratic process of its kind in the nation. Vivian worked hard to get young people in the community to buy in, submit ideas, and eventually vote on how $1million of the city’s capital budget would be spent to make Boston even better for youth and residents.

To be considered for a Massport Memorial Scholarship students must meet the following eligibility requirements:

· Residency requirements;
· High school senior with a minimum 3.0 GPA;
· Letter of acceptance to an accredited college or university;
· Involvement in community service;
· Obtain two letters of recommendation, one of which MUST be from the community service agency where the applicant has volunteered

Students interested in applying for a Massport Memorial Scholarship must submit an essay of 1,000 words describing their interest how their community service has affected their outlook on life. Students interested in applying for the 2015 scholarship should visit for eligibility requirements.
