Ciara Wildes started this petition to Boothbay Region Student Aid Fund

Members of the Boothbay Region community:


My name is Ciara Pitcher, and I ask for your support.


I have created this petition asking for the Boothbay Region Student Aid Fund (BRSAF) to open up eligibility to all students of the Boothbay Region community, not just graduates of BRHS. The BRSAF is a need-based aid fund aimed to support students who are planning on attending higher education. For more information about the Boothbay Region Aid Fund, visit: http://www.brsaf.org/


I was a part of the Boothbay school system for 10 years. After my freshman year, I transferred to Maine Arts Academy (a free charter arts high school) in hopes of pursuing an alternative education. At MEAA, I became a community leader and furthered my music education. Despite transferring, I have been very much involved with the community. I have volunteered on many occasions, I work in the community, contribute to the local economy, and support the community.


I was initially given the okay by the BRSAF to apply after sending a letter of appeal. After completing my application, I was denied weeks later.

University is expensive, and without the support of the Boothbay Region Student Aid Fund, it will be hard for me to pay for my education. I ask the members of my community to help me in getting the BRSAF to change their policy.

Thank you for your support,
Ciara
