Chris Bord Memorial Scholarship
The Chris Bord Memorial Scholarship will be awarded annually to a New Hartford High School senior who is part of the drama club technical crew. This student will have consistently demonstrated a passion for excellence and improvement through dedication and hard work, and will have encouraged the same passion in others through leadership and teamwork. Preference will be given to a student that embodies these characteristics and is planning to pursue a major or career in a technical theater field.
During his time as the Technical Advisor for the New Hartford drama club, Chris had hoped to create this scholarship for students who reminded him of himself at that age. He wanted to encourage students who showed the drive he had, and who could benefit from the extra support of having someone in their corner encouraging them to pursue their theatrical aspirations.
