This scholarship, up to $1,000, was created in memory of Kathleen Boudreau by her daughter, Marleen Boudreau Flory of St. Peter, Minn. Kathleen Boudreau was born in Ireland in 1919, and grew up in Long Island, N.Y., before relocating to New Britain. 

She completed her LPN degree at Hartford Hospital and worked in New Britain convalescent homes for several years. She volunteered at New Britain General Hospital through the 1970s and '80s.
