Concord Crew has awarded their 2nd Annual Concord Crew Bert Whittemore scholarship to four-year varsity rower Logan Wineriter of Canterbury. The scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior who demonstrates commitment to the values and skills learned with Concord Crew to better themselves, their team, and their community.
The scholarship is named for Bert Whittemore. Whittemore helped start the youth program in Concord, and was a steadfast advisor, supporter and ambassador, according to Shelley Tetrault, president of the organization. His passion for crew stemmed from his college rowing experience at Dartmouth College, and his feeling that the sport builds character and friendships as well as muscles. The award is given by Susan Whittemore Chrabolowski and Concord Crew to further Bert’s legacy.
Logan is attending Norwich University in the fall.
A hearty congratulations to all of our graduating seniors. It is your effort and character that enhances the crew experience and provides energy to the entire team. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on crew and life with us at this meeting.
Parents, thank you for sharing your athletes with us.
We know that the hard work and perseverance graduates have shown on the team as well as in school will be reflected in their future successes.
Along with celebrating our graduating rowers, Concord Crew would also present the Jay Printzlau award as well as our traditional Rock awards and the "Hoorah" at this time. Given the current situation with COVID-19 we have opted to present these at the beginning of the Fall season.
