Plymouth: Two Students to Receive Outstanding Citizenship Award

Tonight, the Plymouth No Place For Hate Committee will give their “Outstanding Citizenship Award” to two young residents.

Vice Chair of the No Place For Hate Committee, Jon Plate says this program is open to Plymouth High School students who meet their criteria.


One of the recipients this year is 17-year-old Eleanor Gubbins- who attends Plymouth South High School- for her work with the homeless population.


The other recipient is a Plymouth North High School Graduate, Matthew Scharf, who is president of the Best Buddies Club which focuses on breaking down barriers by merging special education and general education students to promote understanding and friendship.

The award ceremony will take place tonight at Plymouth Town Hall during the select board meeting which begins at 7:00 PM.
