On May 22, 2018, David Estes from Searsport High School was the sixth recipient of the $1,000 scholarship from GAC Chemical Corporation. The award is the Bonnie Smith Devine Scholarship given in her memory. Bonnie was a former GAC employee who made many valuable contributions to the company during her short tenure. With the support of scholarships, Bonnie was able to further her education and become a successful chemical engineer. GAC’s goal is to provide this scholarship annually to help a deserving Searsport student further their education.
David Estes was selected by the teachers and administration at Searsport High School. David will be studying Marine Transportation Operations at the Maine Maritime Academy in the fall.
