Six Danvers High School students have received the first Colleen Ritzer Scholarships.
Catherine Lamoly, Samantha Walters, Mary Leahy, Andrea Lang, Lily Cuzner and Sarah Mountain have received scholarships ranging from $1,500 to $2,500. A total of $12,000 was given out to the students.
The scholarships were available to students in Danvers and Andover, which was Ritzer’s hometown. There have been a number of fundraisers this year for the Ritzer scholarship.
Ritzer, a DHS math teacher, was murdered last fall allegedly by student Philip Chism.
