North Conway, NH – The Cranmore Mountain Employee Engagement Committee recently awarded Kennett High School graduating senior, Harrison Keeler, with a $500 Cranmore Employee Scholarship.
The Cranmore Employee Scholarship is awarded annually to a graduating High School Senior, who is currently or previously employed at Cranmore Mountain or Centerplate at Cranmore Mountain and is in good standing. Applicants must be planning on attending a 2+ year college or trade school upon graduation. The award is based on the student’s academic, community, and Cranmore employment background.
Keeler has worked at Cranmore for a number of years in the Mountain Adventure Park and in the Terrain Park. In his senior year of High School, he was named captain of the baseball team and was starting pitcher and centerfielder. Keeler will be attending Susquehanna University in Pennsylvania this fall, majoring in Environmental Studies. Growing up in the Mount Washington Valley he understands how important the environment is to tourism.
“I want to make sure places like Cranmore still have enough snow for skiing in the future, including both natural and man-made snow, and for businesses like Saco River Valley Canoe Rentals to still have a clean and healthy river for people to enjoy,” said Keeler.
“We are very excited that we are able to award this scholarship each year. There is definitely an emotional connection, as a lot of us at the mountain, including myself, are graduates of Kennett. We wish Harrison and the rest of the graduating class the best of luck in their future endeavors!” Said Marketing Director, Becca Deschenes.
Cranmore recently hosted the Kennett High School Class of 2021 graduation at the summit of the mountain, via chairlift, for the second year, on June 13, 2021.
The Employee Scholarship was developed in 2019 by the resort’s Employee Engagement Committee.
