Dentist Dr. Leslie Elston has created a scholarship for a female graduating senior who is entering into a four-year degree program for a medical profession. The $1,000 one-time scholarship is awarded after the student earns a 2.5 GPA or higher in her first semester at college.
This year’s recipient has not yet been chosen by the student services department, according to Alex Elston, Dr. Elston’s assistant. It will be an annual scholarship, Alex said.
Dr. Elston graduated from Windham High School in the early 1980s and wanted to give back to her school and community. “She wanted to give something. Every little bit helps,” said Alex.
Dr. Elston will present the scholarship on June 6, at the senior awards banquet.
The Dental Office of Dr. Leslie A. Elston has just opened at 713 Roosevelt Trail in Windham.
