Annual Scholarship Awarded


The Ansonia Rotary Club selected Kaitlyn Caple, a graduating senior at Ansonia High School, as its 2019 annual Scholarship Award winner. Ms. Caple was presented with a $1,000 check by Club member and Education Committee Chairwoman Cheryl Biros. Ms. Biros, an agent with Ned Miller Insurance/Starkweather Shepley, noted that Ms. Caple was selected because of her academic and social achievements. A member of the Valley United Way’s Youth Leadership Council, she has volunteered for numerous projects including the local Taskforce on Hunger, giving her time to many nonprofit efforts over the years. A native of Ansonia, she will matriculate to Catholic University in the fall, where she will be one of only two women who has selected an engineering major. Her affinity for mathematics attracted her to the combination of manufacturing and computer technology, which she observed in practice while shadowing a family member in California. She hopes to perhaps hold a similar role in the future, managing technical projects in the corporate world.
