Katherine Lalli passed away on Christmas Eve morning in an automobile accident in Lancaster. Not only was she educated through the Maynard school system but her family has always been very much involved in the Maynard community, especially her parents, who provide programs through Music Together of Assabet Valley, enjoyed by children in the Maynard, Acton, Concord, Sudbury communities and beyond.
For those of you who are looking for a way to honor the memory of Katherine Lalli, the Class of 2012 and the MHS Best Buddies Program are creating a scholarship fund for graduating seniors. The scholarship will benefit students who are pursuing a degree in early childhood education or special education, both passions of Katherine's. Katherine was a graduate of the Maynard High School Class of 2012 and earned an Associate's Degree in early childhood education from Middlesex Community College.
Please make checks payable to "Town of Maynard." Include "Katherine K. Lalli Memorial Scholarship" on the memo line. Please mail donations to: Maynard High School, Katherine K. Lalli Memorial Scholarship, 1 Tiger Drive, Maynard, MA 01754. Acknowledgement of your gift will be forwarded to Katherine's family. We're hoping many people will donate to this scholarship so that Katherine Lalli's legacy will stay alive for many years to come. Thank you.
