We love to spotlight great accomplishments by alumni of MDI and Ellsworth High Schools. Tonight, we want to shine the light on Brigitte Parady, who graduated from Mount Desert Island High School in 2014.

Parady, who is attending the University of Maine, studying civil engineering, was awarded the George J. Mitchell Peace Scholarship and will attend the University College Cork on the south coast of Ireland.  The scholarship covers tuition and fees, books, room and board, a living expense stipend, and a travel grant.
