PLYMOUTH, NH – Kimberlee Esposito of Wilmot, NH was selected as the 2017 recipient of the 7th annual Kathy Anderson Scholarship.

Esposito, a New Hampshire Electric Co-op (NHEC) member, and mother of a young daughter, will receive $2,500 to help continue her studies at Southern New Hampshire University, where she is pursuing an associate degree in General Studies/Business Management.  She plans to go on to earn a bachelor’s degree in Communications.

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.

“Kimberlee is a very grateful and motivated woman with a strong passion for her daughter and her continuing education. This was very clear upon meeting her in person,” said Fred Anderson.

The Kathy Anderson scholarship was established in 2011 and awards one $2,500 scholarship annually to a non-traditional female learner over the age of 25 who is a US citizen, resident of NH and is a member of NHEC. Click here for more information about the Kathy Anderson Scholarship.
