United Helpers Scholarship Winners

Ogdensburg – The Society of the United Helpers recently granted three high school seniors the Helen S. Randles Scholarship Award. Kaylynn M. Hallahan, of Hugh C. Williams High School in Canton; Linsay E. Tennant of Heuvelton Central School; and Joel A. King of Ogdensburg Free Academy.
These scholarships are made possible through the generous donation of an endowment by Helen S. Randles. Helen Randles served the United Helpers organization for 45 years, including terms as president of several boards. “Helen Randles appreciated the value of education and the importance of the field of health care and she would be very pleased with this year’s recipients,” said Betty J. Mallott, Scholarship Committee Member. “We honor these young people, not only for what they have achieved and accomplished so far, we honor them for what they will become.”
Kaylynn Hallahan plans to attend Elmira University in the fall, majoring in nursing. She will graduate from Hugh C. Williams, Canton Central School, where she is a member of the National Honor Society, the National Technical Honor Society and the National Thespian Society. In addition to her studies, Hallahan participates as a member of the track and field team, is a dancer, and an avid community volunteer. She is the daughter of Carol and Brian Hallahan.
Linsay Tennant will graduate from Heuvelton Central School, where she is a member of the National Honor Society and is studying in the Allied Health Program through Northwest Tech BOCES. She plans to attend SUNY Plattsburgh and plans to pursue an education in nursing. In addition to her studies, Tennant is involved in Marching Band, the school’s Encore! theater program, chorus, soccer, lacrosse, and cheerleader squad. Tennant is the daughter of Sylvia and Kurt Tennant.
Joel A. King will graduate from Ogdensburg Free Academy, where he is a member of the National Honor Society and is enrolled in the Allied Health program. King holds a part-time job and has earned Academic All-Northern recognition in three sports: football, basketball and baseball.
