The Ellsworth High School
Alumni Association

Senior, Jillian Dow, daughter of Bryan and Stephanie Dow is awarded the George Ray scholarship in the amount of $2,000 to pursue a degree in marine biology at the University of California at San Diego. The experience of being a crew member of the Island Cruses in Bass Harbor and running a nature cruise vessel was the inspiration Jillian needed to spark her passion for all things wonderful in the ocean. She intends to learn all she can about the ecological management and conservation of marine biomes and bring this knowledge back to Maine to the community she knows and loves. On behalf of the association, congratulations and we wish you all the best.
