The Warren United Church has established a scholarship in memory of life-long member Rebecca Peatman, who was active in the Warren Church and the Mad River Valley community in many capacities.
Rebecca’s contributions to the community included serving as dispatcher for the Mad River Ambulance, Warren Town Treasurer, Justice of the Peace, board member of both the Mad River Valley Health Center, and Central Vermont Home, Health and Hospice. Her commitments to the church were numerous, serving on the Mission, Stewardship, Finance, and Scholarship committees, as well as others.
Rebecca believed in the value of education, and recognized the financial challenge faced by many young people and their families. Providing a scholarship to a local student will honor her memory for many years to come. Her wishes were to help a student who has financial need, and has demonstrated initiatives that resulted in positive outcomes for the community. The Rebecca Peatman Scholarship will consider non-traditional students, as well has high school seniors, and is open to residents of the Mad River Valley.
