The Hollis Republican Town Committee is pleased to announce that this year's winner of the Hollis-Brookline High School Scholarship is HBHS senior Tate Klauber. The scholarship award was presented on June 7 at the Awards Ceremony for the Graduating Hollis Brookline High School Class of 2023, presided over by HBHS Principal Tim Girzone.

This year's scholarship fundraising campaign was a huge success. Not only did we significantly increase our scholarship amount this year, but due to the generosity of our community, we met our $2,500 goal. We are humbled by your support and excited to present this award to one of our outstanding HBHS students.
The increased scholarship amount resulted in a very successful application turnout, with a representation of students from both Brookline and Hollis. Our judging panel used a blind process to select the winner, with each applicant's name and residence masked to ensure an objective evaluation.
Thanks to all who organized the scholarship, liaised with HBHS staff, and participated on the judging panel.
Last, but certainly not least, thanks to all who contributed, both financially and materially, to making this year’s program a success!
The annual HRTC Scholarship is an opportunity to recognize the hard work and personal drive of a Hollis Brookline High School graduating senior. It is a highlight of our HRTC efforts each year. This year we are pleased to announce our partnership with the Brookline GOP as we begin fundraising for this great cause.
"I am very grateful and thankful for the HRTC and the scholarship they awarded me at the conclusion of my senior year. I was and am honored to have won a scholarship from such a remarkable organization that does important work for the local community. The scholarship money has helped me offset the lofty costs of college tuition as well as other education-related expenses. I am studying electrical engineering at Northeastern University and am currently on co-op this semester. This means I'm working full-time in Hollis, at Farm Design, helping to design biomedical equipment.”
