TMHS 2020 Awards and Scholarships

TEWKSBURY — On May 21, 2020, Tewksbury Memo­rial High School premier­ed a pre-recorded scholarship and awards ceremony for the community to celebrate the academic and athletic achievements of the class of 2020. 180 scholarships were awarded, totaling $125,000 in fiscal aid for seniors.

“This scholarship and awards ceremony may not be one that you are used to,” said district superintendent Chris Malone, “but it will be one that you will remember.”

Administration, teachers, and coaches along with business and foundation representatives made the announcements remotely. At the conclusion of the ceremony, a slide show of graduating students was presented.

The program may be viewed on and was produced by Tewksbury Tele­media. The following students are the 2020 re­cip­ients of TMHS’s awards and scholarships.
