The Fellowcraft Club of Annawon Lodge No. 115 AF&AM presented its annual award of excellence scholarship to former, West Haven High School Senior Mackenzie Gardner. She was selected unanimously from a pool of well deserving candidates. Fellowcraft president, Joseph F. McVety, Jr, said “Mackenzie really impressed me with her diverse list of achievements. Excelling not just academically, but also in her extracurricular activities, including various sports and clubs. Giving back to the community is a fundamental value in Freemasonry. Mackenzie’s commitment to her community stood out to me especially. Mackenzie is the epitome of what a true ‘Westie’ should be.”
The Fellowcraft Club Award of Excellence was founded in 2007 and since then has been given annually to an eligible high school senior who resides in West Haven.
