4 North Andover High students earn Ritzer scholarships
ANDOVER, Mass. (AP) — Four more members of the high school Class of 2015 have been awarded scholarships named in honor of a slain Massachusetts teacher.
The scholarships are named after North Andover native and Danvers High math teacher Colleen Ritzer, who was killed in October 2013, allegedly by one of her students.
They are awarded to students from Danvers or North Andover high schools who reflect Ritzer’s values and plan to go to college and become teachers.
The recipients from North Andover High announced Tuesday are Casey Flanigan, who is going to St. Anselm College; Meghan Johnson, headed to Smith College; Katherine Rex, going to the University of New Hampshire; and Sarah Rothmann, going to Bates College.
The Danvers recipients were announced last week.
Ritzer’s family is awarding $30,000 in scholarships this year.
