Congratulations to Abigail Ouellette of Gorham, who was presented with the DiPietro Memorial Scholarship from the Portland Water District.

"We are pleased to award the DiPietro Memorial Scholarship to Abigail Ouellette and are proud to support her in her academic journey," said Frederick McCann, who presented her with the award and is Vice President of the Portland Water District Board of Trustees. "We are impressed by her dedication to environmental sustainability and water resources, and we look forward to seeing her make a difference in the field."

The scholarship was established in 2003 to commemorate longtime trustee Joe DiPietro‚Äôs dedication to advancing youth education, and the Portland Water District Board of Trustees is proud to continue to support local students entering water, wastewater, science, and environmental fields.
