The Wilton Chamber of Commerce presented its scholarship award to Brian Sweeeney, a member of the Wilton High School class of 2013. The award is presented to a commendable high school senior.

Students were evaluated through a blind process, which assessed their academic and civic activities, as well as their commitment to the community.

“Given the model leadership skills, community involvement, and desire to make an impact that each of the prospective candidates possessed, it’s abundantly clear that the Wilton community shares a commitment to rearing bright, conscientious, motivated individuals,” said Chamber president, Peg Koellmer.

Students were eligible based on family member participation in the Wilton Chamber of Commerce.

“I’m flattered to receive the Chamber of Commerce’s award this year, as it only adds to my excitement about my plans for next year at WestConn,” Brian said.
