Dylan Thayer Greenberg of Hanover, Maine

Newry, Maine—The River Fund Maine (TRFM) is pleased to announce Dylan Greenberg of Hanover, Maine, as its newest recipient of The River Fund Maine Scholarship, an initiative that focuses on enabling local youth in the Mahoosuc region to achieve their educational and career-oriented objectives, and one that is deeply rooted in TRFM’s vision and mission.

Dylan is a senior at Gould and will attend Rochester Institute of Technology in their Five-Year Engineering Program. He plans to focus on either cybersecurity or space exploration.

Dylan Greenberg“Dylan is incredibly curious and intellectually tenacious. He is interested in many subjects, and once he becomes engaged with a subject or an idea, he can exhibit incredible persistence about discovering and learning as much as possible about that subject,” says Maggie Davis, Associate Director of College Counseling. He exhibits this persistence in learning and discovery by working with Gould’s REMUS [Remote Environmental Monitoring Units] Program to pilot remote-controlled vehicles with a live camera feed and sensors through Sunday River Resort’s snowmaking system, helping identify blockages, ensuring water intake pipes could operate at maximum efficiency.

“Dylan is a bright, humble, curious, and creative individual. We are beyond thrilled for Dylan to receive this recognition and scholarship from The River Fund Maine, and are not surprised, as he is deserving of this award in every regard,” says Tao Smith, Head of School at Gould Academy. Dylan loves the outdoors, and enjoys rock climbing, whitewater and flatwater canoeing, and is an excellent Nordic skier.

The River Fund Maine Scholarship provides its recipient with up to $20,000 each year for four years toward the cost of college tuition and fees, room and board, books, and educational supplies. The River Fund Maine Scholar also has access to financial counseling and professional mentoring.

“All the 2021 scholarship candidates excelled in academic achievement, school leadership, and community involvement,” says Noah Tanguay-Collins, TRFM Executive Director. “Our education and selection committees were thoroughly impressed by the qualifications of each applicant, making it a tremendously hard decision.”
