Ward Lumber has selected Shayne McCarty as the winner of this year’s Sidney J. Ward Sr. Memorial Scholarship. Shayne is the stepson of Kevin Kennedy, Ward Lumber’s IT Manager. Shayne will receive $1,000 for one year of college study. Shayne will begin his first year at Clinton Community College in Plattsburgh this fall. The selection process is based on scholastic achievement, community and extracurricular activities, personal aspirations and financial need. The scholarship was established in 1971 as a tribute to Sidney J. Ward Sr. who, while only completing the eighth grade before going to work to support his family, believed in encouraging and promoting education, scholastic achievement and good citizenship.
