LONDONDERRY, Vt. – Londonderry Area Tri-Mountain Lions donated $200 to local student Olav Pajala for his tuition for STEM Camp at Babson College in Wellesley, Mass. this summer.
The Floodbrook sixth grade student gave a presentation to the local Lions Club describing his past experience and what he is looking forward to at this summer’s STEM Camp. When a student is accepted, they are responsible for the tuition. Olav’s goal is to earn $200 per month. He has been baking and selling Star Wars cookies and reaching out to friends and relatives to reach his goal.
Tri-Mountain Lions were proud to donate $200 to help his efforts.
