The Mystic Irish Parade Foundation is thrilled to announce Sarah Servidio as the winner of the first annual Colleen and Court scholarship contest. As a senior at Fitch High School, Sarah is a member of the Chamber Choir, National Honor Society and Captain of the Varsity Cross Country Team. Sarah celebrates her Irish heritage as a champion Irish step dancer and an active member of the church of St. Patrick in Mystic.
Sarah is in school now and unfortunately cannot attend this year’s parade.
Grand Colleen is a new tradition for the Mystic Irish parade and is an opportunity for local young women of Irish descent to compete for the opportunity to ride in the parade and receive a $500 college scholarship. Contestants must be local high school women of Irish heritage in their junior or senior year. Applicants were judged based on responses to question regarding how their Irish heritage has impacted them, their community involvement, volunteerism, hobbies and future goals. Congratulations to the Mystic Irish Parade’s first Grand Colleen, Sarah Servidio.
