DHS' Tiernan Creamer Receives Duncan Aviation Award
Duncan Aviation has announced the selection of 20 students to receive awards through the Karen K. Duncan Scholarship program. Each scholarship winner will receive up to $4,000 for their college education — $1,000 a semester for up to two years.
Among the scholarship winners is Dorchester High School senior Tiernan Creamer.
Dorchester was the only high school in our immediate area with a Duncan Aviation scholarship winner. Milford also had a recipient.
The Karen K. Duncan Scholarship program was started in 1999 and is open to dependents of full-time Duncan Aviation team members. Since its inception, more than 200 scholarships totaling $1,320,000 have been awarded through the Karen K. Duncan Scholarship Program.
An independent committee reviewed applicants’ essays and assigned point values to them. Students also earned points for academic achievement, leadership, citizenship, career goals and extracurricular activities.
