2020 Scholarship Recipient

We congratulate Benjamin Wanko upon receiving a 2020 scholarship from the South Yarmouth United Methodist Church.  Ben completed his application and was enthusiastically approved for a $1,000 grant.   Ben has had a very successful career at Dennis Yarmouth Regional High School.  He was a member of the National Honor Society, a Dennis Yarmouth High School Ambassador, the captain of the band “front ensemble,” class marshal and volunteered his time and energy in a variety of ways.  Ben and his family are also active members of our congregation.   Ben will use this scholarship for his continuing education at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.  He intends on studying film making.   We are grateful the congregation has a tradition offering scholarship money to encourage young people in their pursuits beyond high school.  Congratulations to Ben and thank you for the generosity of everyone in the church who makes this ministry possible.
