PLYMOUTH, NH – Alexis Brochu of North Conway, NH was selected as the 2018 recipient of the 8th annual Kathy Anderson Scholarship.

Named for the late Kathy Anderson, wife of retired New Hampshire Electric Co-op President/CEO Fred Anderson, the scholarship was created to help a deserving New Hampshire woman who is seeking to better her life through education.

In addition to her dedication to family and studies, Alexis serves as the Vice President of the Board of the MWV Children’s Museum and is a Certified Personal Trainer, awarded as one of the top three trainers in the Mount Washington Valley by the Conway Daily Sun “Best Of” reader’s choice awards.

“Alexis is a very grateful and motivated woman with a strong passion for her family and her community.  This was very clear upon meeting her in person,” said Fred Anderson.
