2019 Grant Application


The MFE Board is pleased to announce a new grant initiative beginning this May 2019 – The MFE Maddie Lamson Grant. Late last year, the Board was approached by Bob and Alyson Lamson, the parents of Maddie Lamson, who tragically passed away in a car accident during the fall of her senior year at Medway High School. Maddie grew up in Medway and she loved the community of students, teachers and coaches she interacted with across all of Medway Schools. She was planning to attend Wheaton College to become a high school teacher and coach herself.

Maddie’s parents have partnered with MFE in order to provide funding for an annual grant that will be awarded in Maddie’s name. MFE is seeking grant proposals that would reflect Maddie’s passion for the arts and humanities, English reading skills, and leadership. Maddie was a wonderful student who made a strong impression on her teachers and classmates over the years and across several Medway schools. The MFE Board is excited to help memorialize Maddie’s contributions to our community and her wonderful student spirit and leadership skills through this grant process.

If you are interested in being considered for the Maddie Lamson Grant, please indicate that on the MFE grant application that can be found below. If you have questions about the grant application process, please email Brian Gray (bgray_123@yahoo.com) or Sue Olson (sueo@fiveolsons.com). Thank you.
