The Steampunk Society of Vermont presented a STEAM scholar with a $1,000.00 scholarship that was raised by the Springfield Vermont Steampunk Festival this past September of 2017. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics.
This year's recipient is Nicholas Sharpe of North Springfield. The criteria included not just majoring in one of the above areas of study but to show how the student would bring this degree back to the Town of Springfield rather than moving off to other areas of the country.
Nicholas will be attending Lincoln Technical Institute in East Windsor Connecticut majoring in Electrical and Renewable Technology.
His plan is to return to Springfield working for his family business, Sharpe and Sons Electric, LLC starting out as an apprentice and working toward getting his journeyman's license and then his masters license. His plan is then to continue working for the family business and to be on the Ascutney Volunteer Fire Department to "help the community".
