Many resdients of Wallingford do not realize that Wallingford had its own high school until 1975, when it was decided to tear down the ailing structure and consolidate with Clarendon and Shrewsbury. That was when Mill River High School was built. Wallingford High School’s bell remains in the front yard of the Elementary School, where the former school once stood. The High School’s Alumni Association continues to have a reunion every July. The organization’s proudest accomplishment is their scholarship program, which awarded $2000 in funds last year. There are several scholarships available this year for continuing education. If you are a child or grandchild of a graduate of Wallingford High School (WHS), or if you attended WHS, then you are eligible for the Rita Wetherby Memorial Scholarship. To be eligible for the Laura Smith Burnham Scholarship, an applicant must be a resident of Wallingford currently enrolled in a place of higher education. You may apply for the scholarships for as many years as you are continuing your education. Applications must be submitted on or before April 10. They are available through Cassie Ciejko at the Mill River Guidance Office, 802-775-3451, extension 210, or at the Wallingford Town Hall located on School Street. Recipients will be announced in mid-June.
