WILTON — Megha Gupta, a member of the Wilton High School class of 2020, has received a scholarship as the senior who best exemplified the core values of Kiwanis and Key Club.

Megha was a four-year Key Club member. She served three years as a leader as Lt. Governor for four area high schools.

In addition, Megha served in the Salvation Army’s soup kitchen, with Wilton CERT and the Wilton Volunteer Ambulance Corps as a first responder.

Most recently, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Megha created “Wilton Food Friends,” a service matching vulnerable residents with volunteers to deliver groceries and prescriptions.

Megha will be pursuing an engineering degree at Purdue University, followed by medical school.
