The Gail Lascko Memorial Scholarship

The Thomaston Democratic Town Committee has been proud to continue our tradition of awarding a scholarship to a Thomaston resident; who plans to study political science, communication, economics, criminal justice, or a student who demonstrates strong activism within the school and/or broader community.

As you may know, a beloved and devoted member of our committee, Gail Lascko, passed away in November. Shortly thereafter, our committee convened and chose to dedicate our annual scholarship to Gail. The newly named, Gail Lascko Memorial Scholarship, is in memory of her dedication to the students of Thomaston and her work as a member of our scholarship committee.

In addition to her incredible service to our committee, Gail was the sixth grade teacher, drama club director, and mentor for many of our current and former members. Her passion for teaching was unparalleled, and she inspired so many students in our wonderful town. We are proud to dedicate our annual scholarship in her memory.
