Student awarded scholarship from Wareham Historical Society
The Wareham Historical Society awarded Mckenna Fitzgerald a scholarship to help further her studies at Bridgewater State University, where she is a freshman.
A graduate of Wareham High School, Fitzgerald is studying elementary education. Currently, she is particularly interested in her child psychology class, in which she is studying how children learn.
After college, she hopes to become a second grade teacher. Fitzgerald said that she was inspired to become a second grade teacher by her second grade teacher, Catherine Jean, who still teaches at John W. Decas Elementary School.
