Consideration for the scholarship is based on a completed admissions application, a Tri-County senior in good standing, superior academic record, teacher recommendations, interviews with a Dean College admissions representative and Tri-County School Counselors, and extra-curricular activities including employment. Jayme was awarded the scholarship based upon many of her accolades. Jayme is employed part-time at Texture Salon in Medfield where she is a cosmetology assistant and receptionist, and she also works part-time at the Outpost Farm in Holliston. Jayme is very driven and has maintained a 3.95 GPA. Jayme plans to pursue a degree from Dean College in Business Management.
“Jayme Martello has maintained a remarkable record at Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School, said Larry Thode, Senior Assistant Director of Admissions at Dean College. “She has earned a 3.95 GPA while working two part-time jobs and had superior teacher recommendations. Dean College is looking forward to her being a part of the College community in September of 2018.”

Though the scholarship has typically been announced at graduation exercises in the past, this year it has been announced earlier in order to meet the College’s acceptance fall enrollment schedule.
“We are honored that Dean College has provided this amazing opportunity to one of our students, and are proud to be involved in a rewarding partnership that continues to positively impact our community," said Stephen Dockray, Superintendent. “The scholarship program enables another Tri-County student to pursue a college education. Congratulations to Jayme from all of us at Tri-County.”
In addition to Tri-County, the College also awards a scholarship to a student who is a Franklin resident at Franklin High School, and to a student who is a member of the Hockomock Area YMCA.
Dean College awards more than $20 million in scholarships and grants annually to assist students in funding their educations. An astonishing 90 percent of Dean students receive some form of merit-based aid with an average award amount of $19,000 per year. Dean College believes in making a private college education as affordable as possible, therefore most awards are renewable yearly provided the student maintains satisfactory academic progress towards a degree.
